Storyline Of the movie In the 1930s, Jesse Owens is a young man who is the first in his family to go to college. Going to Ohio State to train under its track and field coach, Larry Snyder, the young African American athlete quickly impresses with his tremendous potential that suggests Olympic material. However, as Owens struggles both with the obligations of his life and the virulent racism against him, the question of whether America would compete at all at the 1936 Olympics in Nazi Germany is being debated vigorously. When American envoy, Avery Brundage, finds a compromise personally persuasive and tolerable enough with the Third Reich to avert a boycott, Owens has his own moral struggle on whether to go. Upon resolving that issue, Owens and his coach travel to Berlin to participate in a competition that would mark Owens as the greatest of the American Olympians even as the German film director, Leni Riefenstahl, locks horns with her country’s Propaganda Minister, Josef Goebbels, to film the politically

I truly have to say that this movie could not have came out at a better time. We need more movies to let young people know not just African Americans that they are very much capable for changing the world, even when it seems scary and frighting. I love biography movies for the main reason that when you watch or read about someone, and their tribute to life itself it encourages you to do so much more. I have learned many things from this movie not only that CHANGE can happen even with a SINGLE person. JESSE OWENS has made world breaking changes that should not be forgotten. I truly enjoyed this movie , I recommend everyone to watch this movie. Its a Wonderful History lesson about RACISM, UNITY and standing up for what you believe in even if the world does not give a damn about you, whether its because of the Color of your skin or your religion.
This movie takes place during the time of Hitler’s Reign over Germany, as well as the Segregation of African Americans and White people. The Two most difficult times I truly feel due to I am both African American and German. In order to learn who you are you much understand and learn where you come from. The German’s where in the process of taking away all rights against the Jews and anyone who was not WHITE . I appreciate the clarity in this movie and the way they portrayed these important historical events because, you truly do not get to experience the moments of history as your parents to ancestors but in movies. This movie shows the beauty of Unity and the Overcoming of trials and tribulations and anyone could go through. Jesse Owens was an AFRICAN AMERICAN MAN who not only had to deal with people trying to discourage him because of his SKIN COLOR but also not worrying about what other people taught and do what he enjoyed to do.
I apologize if anyone is offended by this Review… I am not a racist by any means.. just an honest opinion and my thoughts on this amazing movie that I had to honor of watching.

Oklahoma is known for Buffalos and the lovely Native Americans. The Wild Life Refuge is located in southwest Oklahoma on the plains where the Comanche Indians settled in. We went to the Visitor center, as well as the mountain, known as MT. Scott. My mom and GodMother were very happy to be around each other. It was a surprise that was well needed for all of us.

When you visit other places, historical places, and memorials. Oklahoma bombing Memorial is one of the places I reccomend you go see before you Life is over. Its very moving, and if you have the chance go through the entire musuem and live the reacting of that day for yourself. Watching my mom and Godmother sit on the steps just made me realize that friendship can last, no matter what you go through or how far you are. My GodSister will always be dear to me because she was my childhood friend. We like similar things, but grew up differently. They Both enjoyed this memorial very much(Video & pictures on my Instagram mxdbreed_580). After the Memorial we traveled to the Oklahoma Historical Museem where we actually walked through the entire thing, then we ate at the Chessecake Factory and enjoyed a few minutes of retail Therapy at the Penn Square Mall In Oklahoma City.

We went to the amazing The Chislom Trail Museum,Where we learned about the cattle drives and why the trail was named Chislom. As well as the Chicksaw Cultural Center. I’ve lived in Oklahoma for 15 years and always wanted to go there. It was something we all went to see for the first time.
The past week was like a flashback to before I lived in the U.S. Being around people I loved to see on every other monthly basis. I was so honored and blessed to be around these amazing people. We haven’t each other in 16 years and it was just a reminder that no matter how far you live or how long apart you stay.. once reunited if its real nothing will change. The Journey of the Wind allowed me to be around my Family and it was very fun and great!
