Joe Louis

Joseph Louis Barrow, known professionally as Joe Louis, was an American professional boxer who competed from 1934 to 1951. He reigned as the world heavyweight champion from 1937 to 1949, is considered to be one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time. Nicknamed the "Brown Bomber", Louis' championship reign lasted 140 consecutive months, during which he participated in 26 championship fights; the 27th fight, against Ezzard Charles in 1950, was a challenge for Charles' heavyweight title and so is not included in Louis' reign. He was victorious in 25 consecutive title defenses. In 2005, Louis was ranked as the best heavyweight of all time by the International Boxing Research Organization, was ranked number one on The Ring magazine's list of the "100 greatest punchers of all time". Louis' cultural impact was felt well outside the ring, he is regarded as the first person of African-American descent to achieve the status of a nationwide hero within the United States, was a focal point of anti-Nazi sentiment leading up to and during World War II.

He was instrumental in integrating the game of golf, breaking the sport's color barrier in America by appearing under a sponsor's exemption in a PGA event in 1952. Detroit's Joe Louis Greenway and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County's Joe Louis "The Champ" Golf Course, situated south of Chicago in Riverdale, are named in his honor. Born in rural Chambers County, Louis was the seventh of eight children of Munroe Barrow and Lillie Barrow, he weighed 11 pounds at birth. Both of his parents were children of former slaves, alternating between sharecropping and rental farming. Munroe was predominantly African American, with some white ancestry. Louis spent the first dozen years growing up in rural Alabama, where little is known of his childhood, he suffered from a speech impediment and spoke little until about the age of six. Munroe Barrow was committed to a mental institution in 1916 and, as a result, Joe knew little of his biological father. Around 1920, Louis's mother married Pat Brooks, a local construction contractor, having received word that Munroe Barrow had died while institutionalized.

In 1926, shaken by a gang of white men in the Ku Klux Klan, Louis's family moved to Detroit, forming part of the post-World War I Great Migration. Joe's brother worked for Ford Motor Company and the family settled into a home at 2700 Catherine Street in Detroit's Black Bottom neighborhood. Louis attended Bronson Vocational School for a time to learn cabinet-making; the Great Depression hit the Barrow family hard, but as an alternative to gang activity, Joe began to spend time at a local youth recreation center at 637 Brewster Street in Detroit. His mother attempted to get him interested in playing the violin. A classic story is that he tried to hide his pugilistic ambitions from his mother by carrying his boxing gloves inside his violin case. Louis made his debut in early 1932 at the age of 17. Legend has it that before the fight, the literate Louis wrote his name so large that there was no room for his last name, thus became known as "Joe Louis" for the remainder of his boxing career. More Louis omitted his last name to keep his boxing a secret from his mother.

After this debut—a loss to future Olympian Johnny Miler—Louis compiled numerous amateur victories winning the club championship of his Brewster Street recreation centre, the home of many aspiring Golden Gloves fighters. In 1933, Louis won the Detroit-area Golden Gloves Novice Division championship against Joe Biskey for the light heavyweight classification, he lost in the Chicago Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions. The next year, competing in the Golden Gloves' Open Division, he won the light heavyweight classification, this time winning the Chicago Tournament of Champions. However, a hand injury forced Louis to miss the New York/Chicago Champions' cross-town bout for the ultimate Golden Gloves championship. In April 1934, he followed up his Chicago performance by winning the United States Amateur Champion National AAU tournament in St. Louis, Missouri. By the end of his amateur career, Louis's record was 50–3, with 43 knockouts. Joe Louis had only three losses in his 69 professional fights.

He tallied 52 knockouts and held the championship from 1937 to 1949, the longest span of any heavyweight titleholder. After returning from retirement, Louis failed to regain the championship in 1950, his career ended after he was knocked out by Rocky Marciano in 1951. Louis's amateur performances attracted the interest of professional promoters, he was soon represented by a black Detroit-area bookmaker named John Roxborough; as Louis explained in his autobiography, Roxborough convinced the young fighter that white managers would have no real interest in seeing a black boxer work his way up to title contention: told me about the fate of most black fighters, ones with white managers, who wound up burned-out and broke before they reached their prime. The white managers were not interested in the men they were handling but in the money they could make from them, they didn't take the proper time to see that their fighters had a proper training, that they lived comfortably, or ate well, or had some pocket change.

Mr. Roxborough was talking about Black Power. Roxborough knew a Chicago area boxing promoter named Julian Black who had a stable of mediocre boxers against which
