We are less than a month away from the national release of the Jessie Owens biopic “RACE” starring Canadian-born actor Stephan James.

As previously reported, the film chronicles the life of the Olympic icon that defied all the odds when he shattered Adolf Hitler’s myth of Aryan supremacy at the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. Owens won four gold medals in the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash, the long jump and the 400-meter relay.

“RACE” also stars Shanice Banton, Shamier Anderson, Jason Sudeikis, Glynn Turman and more. The film is directed by Stephen Hopkins and written by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse.
