JO Sports Inc.

Regular price $275.00

HISTORY: An American story. Traces the career of Joe Louis (1914-1981) within the context of American racial consciousness: his difficulty getting big fights early in his career, the pride of African-Americans in his prowess, the shift of White sentiment toward Louis as Hitler came to power, Louis's patriotism during World War II, and the hounding of Louis by the IRS for the following 15 years. In his last years, he's a casino greeter, a drug user, and the occasional object of scorn for young Turks like Muhammad Ali. Appreciative comment comes from boxing scholars, Louis's son Joe Jr., friends, and icons like Maya Angelou, Dick Gregory, and Bill Cosby. Offered here is the original HBO movie poster for this 2008 release which has been signed by numerous Hall of Famers and others including: Angelo Dundee, Ernie Terrell, Jose Torres, Gene Fullmer, Carlos Ortiz, Emile Griffith, Pernell Whitaker, Ron Lyle, Alexis Arguello and Carmen Basilio.
