OCTOBER 1968 – Three Men in Mexico

(Alain Philippe Coltier, Foreword by Prof. Colin Tatz)

Telling stories is not black and white but in multiple shades of grey….

As never seen on TV, a 3D hard hitting stage play based on the silent and peaceful protest which still keeps on talking (… it’s Proustian) to planet earth. During a time of turbulence, on October 16th 1968, behind closed doors, waiting for the Olympic medals ceremony to take place, the XXL Afro-Americans sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos went through their motions with Peter Norman, a ‘mug tourist’ from Down Under. Did you ever wonder what was said at the time between them ?
