John Carlos

John Carlos, 1968 Olympics

“Without question or hesitation, I stand with the teachers, students, and parents at Garfield HS as they resist these unjust, soul-crushing standardized tests. This is not a Garfield issue. It’s a discussion in every public high school across the United States. We should all applaud and raise our fists for the people at Garfield and remember them forever as the first to stand up.” – 1968 Olympic medalist and protestor, Dr. John W. Carlos​​.
