"A groundbreaking and timely graphic memoir from one of the most iconic figures in American sports-and a tribute to his fight for civil rights. On October 16, 1968, during the medal ceremony at the Mexico City Olympics, Tommie Smith, the gold medal winner in the 200-meter sprint, and John Carlos, the bronze medal winner, stood on the podium in black socks and raised their black-gloved fists to protest racial injustice inflicted upon African Americans. Both men were forced to leave the Olympics, received death threats, and faced ostracism and continuing economic hardships. In his first-ever memoir for young readers, Tommie Smith looks back on his childhood growing up in rural Texas through to his stellar athletic career, culminating in his historic victory and Olympic podium protest. Cowritten with Newbery Honor and Coretta Scott King Author Honor recipient Derrick Barnes and illustrated with bold and muscular artwork from Emmy Award-winning illustrator Dawud Anyabwile, Victory. Stand! paints a stirring portrait of an iconic moment in Olympic history that still resonates today"--… (mer)

Gr 8 Up—Tommie Smith, who famously raised his fist at the 1968 Olympic games, led an interesting life leading up
to and following that moment. The clashes between his personal ambitions and historic inequality make this graphic
memoir by turns enlightening and inspirational.

The Story:

I’m not sure what to say about this one. It’s an interesting story but not my thing (hence the absurd amount of time it took me to read it) so I don’t want to write home about it.

Really spectacular book. Not only is it a moving and important account of recent Civil Rights history, but its also a well done graphic novel. Tommie Smith and John Carlos' story of defiance and activism in the midst of extraordinary accomplishment stands as a testimony to the powerful wrongs our country has done, and the risks the courageous are willing to take to work for change. Integrity should be rewarded. ( )

All I knew of Tommie Smith was the iconic photograph at the Olympics, his and John Carlos' fists raised in Black power. This excellent graphic novel chronicles Tommie's humble beginnings helping his family sharecrop in the South and then moving to California farming country; coming up through school and encountering racism; discovering his talent in track and field, all interspersed with moments from the medal-winning race that led to his moment of protest atop the podium. You can't help but think how so far ahead of their time was Tommie and his activist friends, how long it took for change to happen, and how much more it will take to keep moving towards racial justice. Powerful and wholly relevant, a must-read for young people. ( )

Studying social science at San Jose State during the civil rights movement, Tommie Smith became involved with local protests. His position as an international athlete was leveraged to speak about racial injustices faced in the USA. When describing his very public protests at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, Tommie wrote “We had to be seen because we were not being heard.” and “Nothing was planned specifically… When the time came, we would know what to do.”

This young adult memoir and graphic novel tells the story of Tommie Smith, from sharecropping in Texas to 1968 Olympic Gold Medalist and beyond. The imagery is done in grey scale solidifying the idea that the world is not black and white, but is all the variations in between. The disparity in Tommie’s younger years is heavily touched upon, however post Olympics’ is a very small synopsis of events leading to present day. Victory. Stand! encourages the reader to realize the history behind the fist for liberation. ( )

The time was nigh . . . Everything had to be right in mind and body . . . No other race mattered . . . The records, accolades, medals, trophies -- none of that mattered . . . The only thing that mattered was that moment.
