ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- As our series of the St. Louis International Film Festival goes on, we’re looking at the documentary Olympic Pride, American Prejudice. Executive producer Michael A. Draper and writer and director Deborah Riley Draper visit FOX 2 News to discuss the film.
The Oscar-qualifying film profiles the 18 African-American athletes of the 1936 Olympics and inspired their recent recognition by the White House, a right they were denied in 1936.
The screening is slated for today at 2:45 P.M. at Tivoli Theatre in St. Louis.
A full list of all films and special events for the festival will be available online. For more on the 25th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival, visit www.cinemastlouis.org.
