Joe Louis PDF

Randy Roberts

A humbling, inspiring . . . deeply emotional biography of the boxing legend who held the heavyweight world championship for more than eleven years (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

Known as the Brown Bomber, Joe Louis defended his heavyweight title an astonishing twenty-five times. Through the 1930s, he got more column inches of newspaper coverage than President Roosevelt. At a time when the boxing ring was the only venue where black and white could meet on equal terms, Louis embodied Black Americas hope for dignity and equality. And in 1938, his politically charged defeat of German boxer Max Schmeling made Louis a national hero on the world stage.

Through meticulous research and first-hand interviews, acclaimed biographer Randy Roberts presents a complete portrait of Louis and his outsized impact on sport and country. Digging beneath the simplistic narratives of heroism and victimization, Roberts reveals an athlete who carefully managed his public image, and whose relationships with both the black and white communities-including his relationships with mobsters-were deeply complex.

Roberts is a fine match with his subject. He supports with powerful evidence his contention that Louiss impact was enormous and profound. -The Boston Globe
