The John Carlos Story: Campus Reading Program Discussion (King Library)
Start Date: 11/1/2018Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 11/1/2018End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:
Olympic runner John Carlos wanted to bring change into society. He was passionate about ending racism in the United States. In 1968, Carlos won the bronze medal in the 200-meter dash during the Olympics in Mexico City. He took that opportunity to stand on the podium and fight for a bigger cause. Tommie Smith and John Carlos’ Black Power salute sparked controversy and cost his career, but he cared more about eradicating racism and injustice. He is a true, lifelong activist. Come join us for a discussion on his remarkable life story, his struggles and achievements.  The discussion will be led by Karin Jeffery (Professor at the Department of Kinesiology), Anamika Megwalu (SJSU Assessment & Engineering Librarian), Craig Simpson (Director of SJSU Special Collections & Archives).   Light refreshments will be provided
