Activists, Artists, Heroes & Humanitarians

American sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos raise their fists and give the Black Power Salute at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City. The move was a symbolic protest against racism in the United States. Smith, the gold medal winner, and Carlos, the bronze medal winner, were subsequently suspended from their team for their actions.

This page is dedicated to the local and global heroes of this lifetime, the ones courageous enough to create, give a damn, and have compassion for the person next to them. These peole challenge us to be healers in our own right while teaching us to remain students of life. They keep us honest. They encourage us to dream. Witness their impact, intentions and hopefully you will walk away inspired. Celebrate the Humanitarian within.
