Olympic Spirit

Jan. 22, 2002


Based on the true story of Jesse Owens, this inspiring and uplifting musical celebrates the determination, spirit, and triumphs of this young athlete over the evils of prejudice and racial superiority at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. Students will enjoy the exciting atmosphere of a world class athletic competition, staged in the grand Broadway style. Just in time for the 2002 Winter Olympics and Black History Month, this story is an appeal for unity and a salute to the games that bring young athletes together for the spirit of brotherhood: the true Olympic Spirit. (grades 3-8)
