Jesse Owens Chronological Sequence

Jesse Owens was a respected Olympian but before he was respected there were difficulties. Jesse Owens was born September 12, 1913 in Oakville, Alabama. Now at that time racism was a huge problem way more than there is now the KKK was still strong and many African Americans where being murdered and treated harshly. Jesse had a talent and he wanted to showcase that talent. Jesse's family was not the wealthiest of families so Jesse would have to work long hard hours and being African American at the time would cut the chances of working just a little bit shorter.


Jesse was given a scholarship for his athleticism and talent and would show people that he could run. One day Jesse was walking with his"black only" track team and where planning on going to a diner but the waiter said no. The waiter advised them to go to a "negro only diner" being respectful Jesse didn't want to start problems so he did not argue and continued on with his teammates. That made him realize that he had to do something and something quick. On the field Jesse set college records that aren't even broken today.


Jesse worked harder and harder and was eventually given a spot on the American track and field team. Sports in America had a special impact on people and when Jesse Owens ran he would make people wonder how hard did he work to reach this level of achievement. Jesse would even talk about racism and being poor at conferences and similar stuff to that. Even Adolf Hitler showed a huge level of disrespect to Jesse Owens even though Jesse never did anything wrong. the reason Adolf left the Olympics early was because of Jesse. In the end Jesse's perseverance paid off and he will be remembered as not just a talented athlete but also a great motivator.
