Interview with Tommie Smith

Words of Colour Production’s executive director Joy Francis interviewed Olympic legend Tommie Smith when he visited London in July 2012 as a guest of OBV for a gala screening of the incisive documentary SALUTE. The film covers the lead up to Smith and John Carlos raising their black leather-gloved fists in support of human rights for African-Americans at the 1968 summer Olympics in Mexico City. Pictures by Lee Townsend.
