Rick Monday Rescues Flag It was one of those sports moments that wasn't about sports: On April 25, 1976 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Rick Monday of the Chicago Cubs heroically snatched an American flag that was about to be set alight by two radical protesters. Monday recalls the event in an interview 30 years later.

Jack Paar Walks Off The Tonight Show One of late-night television's most famous moments: Jack Paar, the host of the Tonight Show, surprised his viewers by abruptly walking off the show on February 11, 1960 to protest the censorship of a mildly risque story the previous night. He vanished for a month before returning to great acclaim. The incident is revisited in this British interview with Paar.

Lunch Counter Sit In 1960 On February 1, 1960 four freshmen from North Carolina A and T struck a blow against segregation by sitting at a 'whites only' lunch counter at a department store in Greensboro, North Carolina. They were denied service and quietly sat there until the store closed. However, their actions caused repeat performances in the following days by even more black students--and numerous copycat sit-ins throughout the segregated south.

2003 Masters Tournament Protest In 2003, the National Organization of Women, led by Martha Burk (pictured here), staged a protest at the Masters Golf Tournament because the host club, Augusta National Golf Club, only accepts male members. Burk got more than she bargained for. Enterprising vendors began selling golf balls with Burk's face on them above the phrase 'The Burk Stops Here!' Augusta's city council passed a law restricting protesters to a vacant lot about a mile from the golf course. Counter-protests began, and they begot more protests. Jesse Jackson supported Burk, so a group of anti-Jackson protesters picketed him. A chapter of the KKK--which turned out to be a one-man outfit--supported Augusta National. Weirdos and attention-seekers of all types flocked to the protest site. One man wore a tuxedo and carried a sign that said, 'Formal Protest.' Another man with an anti-feminist slant carried a placard saying, 'Make My Dinner.' Another group called People Against Ridiculous Protests picketed everybody. Perhaps the most noteworthy and creative protester was a gentlemen who loudly passed gas from the window of a moving minivan when Burk began to speak. Pun-loving Steve Rushin of Sports Illustrated comically referred to the gesture as a 'drive-by tooting.'

Olympic Black Power Salute 1968 Most of the time controversies at the Olympics have to do with the Games themselves. At the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, it was the podium antics of two American medallists that created the biggest stir of the Games. The gold medallist from the 200 metres, Tommie Smith, and bronze medallist John Carlos used the occasion to give a 'black power' salute. The IOC, citing a 'misuse of the podium to make a political statement,' sent the two Americans home immediately afterward.

Get on Down and Party Disco music was all about fun. Unlike the protest movement songs of the 60s all people wanted to do was party and have fun, nothing more.

March on Washington 17 April 1965 There were many epic protests against the Vietnam war that inspired my generation but this photograph of a demonstrator placing a flower in the barrel of a National Guardsman’s gun – a single, small but defiant act of protest – was both of the time and, eternally, an assertion for peace against war. The moment gathered further cogency in May 1970 after the killing of four students at Kent State University in Ohio in a similar protest. It emerged that one of the dead, Allison Krause, had also placed a flower in a gun the previous day

Rick Monday Saves American Flag 1976 At a time when the USA was experiencing a resurgence of patriotism with the Bicentennial, a pair of protesters apparently didn't get the message that the 1960s were over: The Cubs and Dodgers were playing in Los Angeles and with the Dodgers batting in the bottom of the 4th inning, two men ran onto the field, intending to burn an American flag. The men spread the flag on the outfield grass, and one of them soaked it in lighter fluid as the other was about to ignite it. A quick-thinking Rick Monday ran towards the men, grabbing the flag and preventing the desecration of the Stars and Stripes.
