In 1936, when 18 African American athletes, dubbed the "black auxiliary" by Hitler, participated in the Berlin Olympic Games defying Nazi Aryan Supremacy and Jim Crow racism, history forgot all except one. This is the story of the 17. 

The Work-in-Progress screening of Coffee Bluff Pictures’ Olympic Pride, American Prejudice is in partnership with Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission and the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education. This event is free and open to the public. The Freedom Film Series is sponsored by Chubb Group of Insurance Companies.
