The Last Protest, Lee Evans in Mexico City, tells the story of the proposed boycott of the 1968 Olympic games by America's black athletes. The narrative is directed to the experience of Lee Evans of San Jose, California, one of two athletes, along with Tommie Smith, most closely associated with the movement.

From the Publisher:

As the Olympic year 1968 opened, Lee Evans was the top 400-meter man in the world, and an early favorite for a gold medal in his event.

But that was before the Olympic Project for Human Rights, before the proposed boycott of the games by America's black athletes, before the building pressure settled on Lee Evans and San Jose State University teammmate Tommmie Smith; before Smith won his own gold medal at 200-meters and before Smith and John Carlos struck their clenched, gloved fists into the Mexico City evening air. Lee Evans was favorite before the world fell in on him.

That Evans thereafter won an Olympic gold medal is part of the story; that he set a world record for 400-meters that would endure for two decades is another part of the story.

The entire story is deeper still; it is the man himself, an American hero at high noon.

From the Author:

The Olympic boycott of 1968 is an oft-told tale, but it ends early. The tale ends with Tommie Smith and John Carlos on the victory stand, and ends with their iconic pose.

But of course, the matter did not end there. Lee Evans was left behind, as were his remaining teammates. What they did next is a tale unto itself. And one not often told.

So, is this particular tale--the one about Lee and his friends--about athletics?

It is.
