Summary:
This two-part documentary follows Jack Johnson's journey from his beginnings as the son of former slaves, to his entry into the brutal world of professional boxing, where, in turn-of-the century Jim Crow America, the heavyweight champion was an exclusively "white title." Despite the odds, Johnson was able to batter his way up through the ranks, and in 1908 he became the first African-American to earn the title Heavyweight Champion of the World.
