Though the 2020 Olympic Games have been postponed, the fight of Tommie Smith and his colleagues has never been more relevant than it is today. His courage is directly connected to the generations of people standing up against injustice, raising their fists in the streets each day.

Last year, Lucie Kaas approached Tommie Smith as a fitting addition to our Sketch.inc for Lucie Kaas Collection. The original intention was to celebrate and honor his legacy in the build up towards the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

While emphasis has often been put on the salute itself, there were also many other statements integrated on to the stand that day. Both Tommie and bronze medal winner John Carlos stood without shoes to represent the institutionalized poverty inflicted on black Americans. All three athletes, Tommie, John, and Australian Peter Norman wore OPHR – Olympic Project for Human Rights – badges. The OPHR was an organization with the aim of protesting racial segregation in the United States, Apartheid in South Africa and racism in sports in general.

The demonstration is regarded as one of the most overtly political statements in the history of the modern Olympics.

Lucie Kaas is extremely proud and honored that Tommie agreed to work with us in the latter of 2019, and his addition to our curated collection fits perfectly in our celebration of pioneers, icons, and trailblazers.
