“My name is Jack Johnson. I’m heavyweight champion of the world. I’m black — they never let me forget it. I’m black, all right — I’ll never let them forget it.”
Swagger? Check. Confidence? Check. A firebrand of his times, who opened the gates for the black athlete in America? Check, check, check.
For some in the early 20th century, he was a picture of defiance. For everyone else, Jack Johnson was not only the first ever Black heavyweight champion of the world who broke through in 1908, he was a blaze of infinite glory. A symbol of strength. And the original showman, who wasn’t about to let you forget who he was.
The shadow of the Galveston Giant stretches for more than century.
