    Carlos and Smith and the Mexico City Olympics 50 years on – the struggle continues

    Fifty years ago, John Carlos and Tommie Smith changed the course of sport history by demonstrating the political nature of sports. Harry Edwards looks back and forward in this anniversary edition of his classic study The Revolt of the Black Athlete (University of Illinois Press). Jorid Hovden remembers 1968 well and appreciates the reissue, but makes some critical points as well.
