Athletes Beyond The Wind - The Black American Male Track and Field Experience - A historical, pictorial reflection of 66 black male track and field Olympic medalists, who raced, jumped, and showed infinite strength, resolve and dignity. Each step they took was one of faith and determination to uplift themselves, their families, and their communities. This books reflection takes you from the first Olympic Games in 1904, where two men raced and jumped to Bronze and Silver Olympic medals in St. Louis, Missouri. The Pivotal games of Gold in 1936, where Jesse Owens and 9 black male Olympians amassed 13 total medals, in the face of a dictator who created racial divide on a world stage. The journey to 1968, in Mexico City, Mexico, is truly the Paradigm shift in track and field. The forward from 1984 Olympic Gold medalist and NFL Professional player, Ron Brown, and introduction from 1988 Olympic Gold medalist, Dr. Andre Phillips, raced into history on the shoulders of the 66 Olympians who took a stand for black Americans and a salute for human rights. Athletes Beyond The Wind - The Black American Male Track and Field Experience highlights lives that truly matter in the critical link uniting black men from the USA to the World through Olympic competitive participation.

In Hines Sight - The Sprinter in Time is a memoir written by Jim Hines who is the 1st MAN TO BREAK the 100 METER BARRIER running under 10 seconds at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City, Mexico. He raced to win DOUBLE GOLD MEDALS in the 100-meters in 9.89 seconds but was officially given the time of 9.95 seconds. Jim Hines broke speed barriers as his anchor leg of the relay is one of the fastest ever run in 8.2 seconds. Hines raced to achieve World and Olympic records in the 100-meters and the 4 x 100-meter relay time of 38.24 seconds. Each reader will race through the history of a great life that places Jim Hines as an Olympic Legend and keeps everyone "IN HINES SIGHT."
