Louis Vs. Schmeling

Joe Louis pictured just before his fight with Max Schmeling in 1938 (top) and squaring up to his German foe in preparation for their bout (bottom). It took Louis a little over two minutes to win the match which many see as the first time white America rooted for a black person over a white one. This was due to tensions between the United States and the German Nazi Party and years later, Louis would state:

“White Americans, even while some of them were lynching black people in the South, were depending on me to K.O. a German … the whole damned country was depending on me.”
