Title: Jesse Owens
: Daily News of Los Angeles
Date: April 1, 1980
About this cartoon: The track star Jesse Owens was best known as the man who multiple victories spoiled Adolf Hitler's "Nazi Olympics" of 1936, which was supposed to show off the superiority of Aryan athletes.
Noteworthy: The original was supposedly requested for Owen's widow, but seems to have wound up in the office of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics coordinator, Peter Ueberroth... I found this out when he was named Time magazine's "Man of the Year", and I spotted my cartoon in a photo of the walls of his office in the magazine.
