Olympics and politics

As television as a medium for information and news grew, so did its use as a format for political protest, especially at the Olympic games as they began to be broadcast live from wherever in the world they happen to be played. Two specific instances of protests during Olympic games were broadcast as they occurred, causing controversy and, in one case, terror. The 1968 Olympics were used as a platform for Black Power and the 1972 Olympics were used as a platform for Black September. You should start with the textbook for background information and an understanding of the atmosphere during both protests. (Ill send the photos )
