Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Brother Jesse Owens

His dedication, persistence and talents transcended him to the icon we know and love today. We encourage all brothers to support the film RACE this weekend, the new biopic about the life of Jesse Owens distributed by Focus Features and promoted by Brothers Tirrell Whittley [Beta Nu ’93] and Nick F. Nelson [Beta Nu ’94], owners of LIQUID SOUL.


Based on the incredible true story of Brother Jesse Owens [Kappa ’35], the legendary athletic superstar whose quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy. “Race” is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man’s fight to become an Olympic legend.
