Abstract:

This first part of the film follows Jack Johnson's remarkable journey from his humble beginnings in Galveston, Texas, to his entry into the world of professional boxing, where, in turn-of-the-century Jim Crow America, the heavyweight championship was an exclusively "white title." In 1908 Johnson became the first African-American to earn the title Heavyweight Champion of the World. On July 4, 1910, ex-champion Jim Jeffries, the new "Great White Hope," challenged the champion. The fight was billed as the Battle of the Century. Despite a hostile crowd and a steady stream of racial epithets hurled from Jeffries's corner, Johnson won an easy victory, provoking race riots all around the country.
