WOSU presents a new half hour documentary: Jesse Owens: Enduring Spirit airing nationally on the Big Ten Network this Tuesday night at 9 pm  following the Ohio State basketball game on BTN. 

If you miss it, tune in to WOSU TV for our premiere of the documentary on Sunday, February 12th at 6:30 pm. It is a story that is largely left untold in many of the profiles of this remarkable man.

Kudos to WOSU producers Ben Bays and Shawn Likely for this unique look at one of our country’s athletic legends.  And thanks to Ohio State Athletics for their financial support to make it possible.
