About this title


What Part Will You Play in Ending Racism?
Lee Evans, African-American and Gold Medalist in the 1968 Mexico City Olympics in the 400-meter dash, allowed me to observe his life up close. I saw the treatment he received by whites. Lee and I were teammates on the San Jose State track team from 1967-1969. This gave me first hand exposure to both the overt and subtle forms of hate and prejudice he faced daily. Through this journey, I came to grips with the innate racism and prejudice in myself. This book is a challenge to people of all ethnicities to look inside and move past tolerance to love.
Life Lessons from Speed City will:
-Challenge everyone to think through their feelings about those different from them
-Present an inside look at one of the all-time great dual meet track teams in history
-Give you a fresh look at the dramatic Black Power salute by Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City
