Athletics AT XIX Summer Olympics

During the award presentation for the Men’s 200 metres event final at the 1968 Summer Olympics, American athletes, gold medalist Tommie Smith (center) and bronze medalist John Carlos (right) each raise a clenched fist and bow their heads during the US National Anthem as a Human Rights protest, while they stand on the podium with Australian silver medalist Peter Norman (1942 - 2006), Mexico City, Mexico, October 16, 1968. All three men wore badges expressing support for the Olympic Project for Human Rights; and Smith and Carlos' gestures have been described (by the men themselves) as both Black Power and Human Rights salutes. Visible at bottom center is the David Cecil, the 6th Marquess of Exeter (1905 - 1981) who presented the medals (Photo by Popperfoto via Getty Images)
