Summary
On the eve of World War II, African American boxer Joe Louis fought German Max Schmeling in a bout that had more at stake than just the world heavyweight title; for much of America their fight came to represent the country's war with Germany. This elegant and powerful picture book centers around the historic fight in which Black and White America were able to put aside prejudice and came together to celebrate our nation's ideals. -- from Book Jacket
