Students from the Charles Wright Academy of Arts and Science unveiled a mural of Jesse Owens. The track and field star won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany, as Adolph Hitler was looking on.
This was a project for Black History Month.
"We're hoping that Owens' legacy will carry on and that our youth and our community will continue to believe in themselves, and to make a difference," said Katie Kostrzeba of Focus Features.
"I'm very proud to display this on my building. We're in the community, and, for me, for children in the community to see such a powerful person as Jesse Owens displayed in their community means a lot to me," said Clement Brown of the Fame Shop.
The banner is located on the front of the Fame Shop building on Detroit's west side.
