In 1984, the Berlin street known as Stadionallee - Stadium Boulevard - south of the Olympic Stadium in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf was renamed Jesse-Owens-Allee in recognition of the four gold medals that the American had won there in 1936. Owens' widow Ruth and his three daughters attended the dedication ceremonies as guests of the German Government. A memorial plaque for Owens is also located at the Olympiastadion. In the same year, a secondary school in Berlin-Lichtenberg, was named after Owens.
