Unforgivable Blackness

The story of the Rise and fall of Jack Johnson. This a a great documentary that aired on PBS the last two nights about his becoming the first black heavyweight boxing champion and the search for the "great white hope" that followed. I never really new much about this whole episode in American history but it is really interesting. There is great old footage, interviews, and Johnson's voice is played by Samuel L Jackson.

I didn't record it. It did air again this weekend but I don't know if it will again or not. If you click on the linked title you can go to PBS and see if it plays again later.
