Little People Big Dreams - Jesse Owens
Little Jesse, originally J.C., was born in Oakville, Alabama, during segregation. When he was nine, he moved with his parents and nine brothers and sisters to Cleveland, Ohio, to find a better life. There he found his passion for running and was making national headlines by high school where he equalled the world record in the 100-yard dash. It was during the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics that he established himself as a legend, winning four gold medals that also delivered an unforgettable blow to Hitler and racism.
