In Black and White: The Untold Story of Joe Louis and Jesse Owens by Donald McRae
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR, 2002 - the extraordinary biography of two of the world's greatest athletes, Jesse Owens and Joe Louis. Jesse Owens and Joe Louis have been hailed as American icons for the last sixty-five years, yet they were unfailingly human in everything they achieved and endured: as vulnerable as they were courageous; as troubled as they were brilliant; as restless in themselves as they are now rooted in history. IN BLACK AND WHITE will tell, for the first time, the story of the shared political legacy, extraordinary personal links and enduring friendship between 4-times Olympic gold medallist Jesse Owens, and Heavyweight World Boxing Champion Joe Louis, black athletes born in an America demeaned by racism and poverty.
