Salute (trailer)

2

Salute chronicles Peter Norman's involvement in the Black Power salute at the 1968 Olympics. The picture of the three men on the winner's podium after the Men's 200m final at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics is still considered one of the most powerful images of modern history. Almost forgotten in the ensuing years is the seemingly quiet and composed man in the left of the picture, the Australian silver medalist Peter Norman. Why is he considered a household name throughout the United States even today? And why do the other medalists Tommie Smith and John Carlos consider him a brother? This is the story of the quiet man, the forgotten man, and a salute to him.
