Summary

Strong rhythms in the text and powerful beauty in the art combine to tell the story of Jack Johnson, one of the most renowned boxers of the twentieth century. His hard work and persistence, strength of character and purpose helped him climb the ranks and take a swing and a jab and eventually bust the color barrier. Published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of his history-making bout, this extraordinary marriage of poetry and fabulous collage artwork is a splendid achievement in its own right.
