Includes special edition: The Making of a Legacy: Commemorating 50 years of Tommie Smith and John Carlos' protest at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.

From the Editor's note:

Standing before the world, two San Jose State University student-athletes did the unthinkable.

In this special section of the Spartan Daily, Smith and Carlos’ protest at the Olympics is remembered and honored.

Editors and staff writers explore the history of the event as well as SJSU’s oft-forgotten history. Smith and Carlos’ act of protest draws parallels to the forms of activism taken in sports today, and proves that while their actions were brave, our nation still has much to learn.
