In 1912, Henson published a memoir titled A Negro Explorer in the North Pole that detailed his Arctic adventures. It helped call attention to his role in the achievement, but he was still mostly forgotten. In 1937, he finally received long-deserved recognition when he was invited to join the New York Explorer’s Club. It wasn’t until 2000, after his death, that Henson was awarded the National Geographic Hubbard Medal. 🗣Athlete4Impact #BlackHistoryMonth

Florence Griffith Joyner set the world record in the 100 meters 30 years ago July 16, 1988, on a day of swirling wind in Indianapolis. The mark of 10.49 seconds was astonishing; it broke Evelyn Ashford's 1984 record by 27-hundredths of a second. In the era of electronic timing, the women's 100-meter record had never been lowered by more than 13-hundredths of a second. #Athletes4Impact !

In solidarity.” –Ibtihaj Muhammad Purchase you Solidarity shirt now! www.omaze.com @omazeworld __ Also @ibtihajmuhammad book has been officially released today! #Athletes4Impact!

Dr John Carlos: @drjohncarlos1968, Recipient of the Inaugural Athletes for Impact Dr. John Carlos, Legacy Award. 🥇🥇🥇🥇🥇🥇 ___ With the eyes of the world watching, Dr. John Carlos, along with his U.S. Track & Field Teammate Tommie Smith and Peter Norman, used the Olympic podium at the 1968 Games in Mexico as a platform to call attention to injustice. As Smith and Carlos walked to the podium, they took off their shoes to protest poverty. They wore beads and a scarf to protest lynchings. And when the national anthem was played, they lowered their heads in defiance and raised their fists in a Black Power salute that rocked the world.Dr. John Carlos chose the Olympic Podium in 1968 to take action, but it did not stop there. His lifetime of activism for human rights is too long and illustrious to recount today, chronicled in many books and movies. In short, he has been inducted into the USA Track & Field Hall of Fame, he is a founding member of the Olympic Project for Human Rights (OPHR). He is the author of The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World and is a true civil rights pillar. #LEGEND 🥇🏅🏆🥇🏅🥇 #Athletes4Impact
