Joe Louis: America's Hero Betrayed
Joe Louis made his name as a heavyweight champion, but as this documentary reveals, he came to symbolize much more: A segregated America united to watch his rise to success. And as the Nazis swept through Europe, Louis's victory over German boxer Max Schmeling represented more than just a triumph in the ring. Maya Angelou, Bill Cosby and Louis's son offer insights, and archive footage captures the champ at his peak.
