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)
