Tommie Smith and John Carlos will forever be remembered for this historic moment. Set in Mexico at the 1968 Summer Olympics, the Track and Field athletes rose their fists in solidarity - an act they would dub a "human rights salute."  Peter Norman, the Austrailian who won second in the 200-meter running event, also showed his support by wearing a human rights badge on the podium.

Framed in 100% wood, this print is crafted on museum grade paper - able to withstand 75 years of ageing. Backed with wire and kraft paper, it comes to a finished frame size of 18.5x22.5x1 inches.
