Mr. Ubiquitous Reports: Movie: "Race" (March 27, 2016)
Gary Morgan, aka Mr. Ubiquitous, reports:

    Staying closer to home this weekend I took in a movie with my good friend Chris Ford. The movie is called "Race" and is about the life of Jesse Owens. He went to The Ohio State University in 1932, and was coached by the legendary Larry Snyder. The movie showed that Owens had a girlfriend and a daughter when he enrolled at Ohio State. His middle name was Cleveland and that's where he grew up. Owens equaled the world record in the 100 yard dash of 9.4 seconds in high school. This was all during the depression in the 1930's. As a student at The Ohio State University, Owens faced huge amounts of racial discrimination. Very few black people went to northern universities in the 1930's. He did not have a scholarship so he had to work part time jobs to pay for his college education. Yet, with all this adversity he won 8 NCAA national individual track titles in 1935 and 1936-- four each year. His greatest college day came May 25th, 1935 at Ferry Field in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan during the Big Ten championships. He set or equaled four world records in the 100 yards, 220 yards, 220 yard hurdles and the long jump. A plaque there commemorates that day at the field.

n 1936 the world knew what was going on in Nazi Germany: Jews and undesirables, anyone who wasn't part of the so called Aryan race were rounded up to isolate them from society and make them do forced labor. Then they were taken to camps. The United Sates was divided on going to the Olympics, but the US Olympic committee voted to go. Jesse Owens was under so much pressure to go and win that he almost didn't go because of the politics and racism in America and Germany. He decided to go and changed history forever.  During the movie a radio played with people listening to the Joe Louis versus Max Schmeling  boxing fight that took place in Yankee Stadium on June 19, 1936. Joe Louis lost that fight.  He beat Max Schmeling and the Nazi theory of Aryan supremacy on June 22 1938 although this wasn't in the movie. Avery Brundage was one of the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) leaders at that time and became International Olympic Committee (IOC) president in 1951. In the movie he fought to have the USA go to the 1936 Olympics. The movie shows Brundage's company getting a contract to build the German embassy in Washington DC. To this day the allegation that a bribe was involved with that contract has not completely proven to be true but a lot of evidence shows that it was. Sports, Politics and Money leads to corruption. As Jesse said in the movie, "For that ten seconds you can forget about the whole world."   
    I highly recommend seeing this movie. It was really good.
    This movie brought back a lot of memories. I raced inside of the horseshoe stadium of Ohio State at the Jesse Owens classic meet in 1984 and 1985. I saw Jesse Owens in person at the Detroit Auto Show in 1971 when he was on a Ford sports panel with other great athletes like Tigers great, Al Kaline, and others. I still have the sports card from that day. I went to the World Championships in 2009 held at the Berlin Olympic Stadium, covering it for the Michigan Runner. I also have memories of competing at Ferry Field in Ann Arbor over the years. Movies, like life, can teach you lots of things you didn't know before you went.

    Keep watching and learning

    Gary Morgan
    Mr Ubiquitous
Editor's note: I really liked the movie, too. Among the things I learned in the movie was the racism the U.S. Olympic coach Lawson Robertson showed toward Owens. I'm really sorry that the University of Michigan will tear down Ferry Field. It should be a national historic landmark.
