On of the most indelible images of sport in the Sixties was the picture of Tommy Smith and John Carlos standing on the victory podium with their black gloved fist salute during the playing of the American national anthem. That image returned to me this past week when ESPN presented a three-part series on the social role of the Black Athlete.
