Little People Big Dreams: Jesse Owens

£9.99
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.
