While Jesse Owens gets most of the attention for being a black man that would win gold medals at the 1936 Olympics, there was another. John Woodruff would win the 800 meter event and take the top spot on the podium in Nazi Germany in front of a packed house of spectators who hated him! A rare image in great shape, this is from Acme and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well. This is one of the only images of Woodruff we have ever handled!
