Race is a history drama film that also acts as a biography and features Jesse Owens, played by Stephen James, as the main character. The story takes place in the 1930s and shows Owens as a regular person who is also the first in his family to attend college. While at college, particularly Ohio State, he takes a serious liking to track and field athletics but at the same time is blindsided by his regular life issues, and more important the rampant racism that he faces from society at large. The subject of the Olympic games comes up and there is debate on if America will compete, considering the games take place in Nazi Germany and Owens finds himself debating his participation in the games even more due to the stigma of Aryan Supremacy. After some time and thought, Owens and his team decides to head overseas to compete.
