Silent Gesture The Autobiography of Tommie Smith (Paperback)
From the Publisher:
The Olympic gold medal-winning track athlete best remembered for raising his black-gloved right fist while on the medal winner's podium at the 1968 Olympics discusses what the gesture meant to him and its lasting impact on his life as an educator and coach. Reprint.
"...Smith's candid reflections on life after Mexico City is compelling....Most striking though are revelations about the stresses he endured before the 11968 race, including regular death threats and the inability to financially support his wife and child." - Curtis Stephen may/June 2007
