History of the day for November 13

In 1968, Tommie Smith and John Carlos win gold and bronze in the 200-meter run in the Mexico City Olympics, but lose their medals after giving the black power salute during the national anthem. Kyle Anderson, a white American, faces no punishment for giving the "bunny ears" behind the gold medal winner's head after placing second in the 50-meter freestyle.
