God Bless Jesse Owens

The name most people will be Tweeting out about today will be the late actor Paul Walker, and despite me enjoying his action packed films and meaning no disrespect to him, there is also another notable birthday to celebrate today.

Jesse Owens is one of the most important men in sporting and political history. Despite his bevy of world records and Gold Medals, Owens will go down as a single man who destroyed Hitler’s myth of Aryan Supremacy and win four Golds at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.

God Bless Jesse Owens.
