Laurens Grant’s Jesse Owens Documentary (shown at East Tech-my school)

Today I had the privilege to see  today at my school, East Technical High School in Cleveland, Ohio, Laurens Grant’s Jesse Owens Documentary. East Tech is also the high school Jesse Owens attended. I truly enjoyed the film and getting not only Ms. Grant’s autograph, but being apart of the Question Committee as well as a panelist. I did learn that Jesse Owens was suspended by the AAU for not competing in a tour. I never knew that bit of info so I was definitely enlightened by the film. Kudos to Laurens Grant! And thanks for letting us see it first at East Technical HS.

  1. Jesse Owens did such a courageous thing- and didn’t get enogh credit when he came home. Having to race horses to make money for his family. How far will hate and color lines belittle good people? Until we learn as a people to belittle hate and color lines!
