Jesse Owens


Not only was Jesse Owens an amazing athlete, his skills also had a huge impact on peopleís opinions. First of all, he went to the Olympics, then won four gold metals, proving everyone wrong on the assumption that people who werenít white were inferior. This also proved Hitlerís entire idea wrong, that to make a perfect world he had to get rid of all the people who were different. Another important thing was that he inspired everyone who had ever been treated unfairly or thought of as inferior, and showed them that they were just as good as other people. After he finished his athletic career, Jesse Owens went on to become an inspirational speaker, where he reached out and help even more people. In conclusion, throughout Jesse Owensís life he had inspired thousands and proven millions wrong.
