More than a simple biography, Joe Louis provides an in-depth look at what constitutes a "hero" in America's black community. As much as any drug store sit-in, civil rights march, or Senate Hill bill, Louis' fists figuratively and literally demolished the myth of white supremacy; his quiet dignity and unquestioned patriotism opened the door for the wave of black athletes who followed him. 32 pages of photos, many in color.
