American Experience - Jesse Owens

Last month PBS aired American Experience: Jesse Owens. The complete episode is now available online at PBS Video. The American Experience website offers some lesson plan ideas for teachers who want to use the video in their classroom. I've embedded the first segment of the show below.

Watch Jesse Owens on PBS. See more from American Experience.

American Experience: Jesse Owens does a good job of going beyond Owens' performance in the 1936 Olympics and delving into the social issues of the time in the United States and of course, those in Germany.
