The VIP and celebrity turnout was awesome as everyone anxiously anticipated seeing the film Race.  Stephan James is truly a young star on his way to big things in the film world after his superb portrayal of renowned Olympic gold medalist Jesse Owens. The 22-year-old Canadian actor’s skills won over the hearts of the entire audience in his role as Owens, who was determined to change the world’s perception of Black athletes by winning the gold medal in Berlin and making a statement for America.
