Synopsis

American Experience: Jesse Owens
Andre Braugher narrates a profile of Jesse Owens (1913-80), the legendary track athlete who upended Adolf Hitler's goal of using the 1936 Berlin Olympics as a showcase for the superiority of Aryan athletes by winning four gold medals.\Following the games, Owens was stripped of his amateur standing for skipping an Amateur Athletic Union tour of Europe and returning home (he missed his wife; and also hoped to cash in on his celebrity). Included: insights from Owens' daughters Beverly and Marlene. ~ Jeff Gemmill, Rovi
