It’s February the first brothers and sisters. Time to get your black history education on and popping! This picture here is of US athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos in 1968. As a protest to racism both wore black wristbands, bowed their heads and raised their fists. Both were suspended and barred. *all info provided by the photographic book “Freedom”
