Joe Louis: America’s Fighter

Out of stock
Joe Louis grew up poor, the son of sharecroppers in a "no-place-to-go world." By his twenties, he was rising through the ranks of professional boxing, serving as a symbol of hope to millions of African Americans. Then, with World War II looming on the horizon, the Brown Bomber fought the world heavyweight champion, Germany’s Max Schmeling, and became a hero to all Americans. Full-color art. Author’s notes.
