American athletes Larry James, Lee Evans and Ron Freeman (l to r) on the 400 metres podium at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City. They demonstrate against American race discrimination by clutching their fists on the podium.

The Mexican Olympics in 1968 took place against a backdrop of student protest. French photographer Raymond Depardon, a founding member of the Gamma agency for whom he worked at this time, was present to capture the games themselves including the Black Power salute by America's athletes in support of the Civil Rights struggles there. Depardon subsequently joined Magnum in 1978 and has since pursued an illustrious dual career as photographer and award-winning filmmaker.
