Here’s why Jack Johnson may have been greater than Muhammad Ali
Author Adam Pollack has just released arguably the most detailed book ever on the great boxer Jack Johnson. Many people tend to forget that Jack Johnson was heavyweight champ of the World during the early 1900’s when lynching’s and Jim Crow laws were fashionable and legal; Johnson was openly sleeping with white woman and knocking out every great white hope that was put in front of him. The 880-page book completely covers Jack Johnson’s reign and life as world heavyweight champion both inside and outside the ring. It’s unique because it analyses racial incidents and riots, the significant racial impact of Johnson’s achievements, legal impediments, religious and racial objections, and the details of Johnson’s many legal struggle. It even talks about the Black Wall Street Massacre. Please watch the video below as Roosevelt Mitchell III and Adam Pollack discuss its significance.
