Black Power Salute

After a bad night sleeping at my aunt´s house  in São Paulo I went downstairs to have a nice fresh and smelly coffee, while enjoying my  coffee I turn the telly on and by pure coincidence there was a great documentary about 3 Great mens who believe in Human Rights and Equality between races and people.  It was in the Olympics of 1968 the year of  the Black Salute.

The photograph of the two men with their heads bowed, each of them with an arm raised in the air and a fist clothed in a black leather glove, is one of the most striking images of the 20th Century. Power
