Title: Social Aspects of Sport: A Salute to 1968, An Olympic Stage for Social Justice

This presentation will contextualize the importance of “the salute” during the 1968 200 meter dash Olympic awards ceremony in Mexico City.  We’ll walk backwards through the years preceding the event to better understand the dissonance the gesture created.  From these events the rise of the academic discipline of Social Aspects of Sport began.  Some social aspects of sport intertwined with this event are race, media, and politics will be discussed.
