This powerful picture book biography centers around the historic fight between American Joe Lewis and German Max Schmeling, in which Black and White America were able to put aside their prejudice and come together to celebrate our nation''s ideals. Full color.
The pre-WWII 1938 boxing rematch between African American Joe Louis and German Max Schmeling is told in this historical picture book. Focusing on how the fight crossed the color barriers and brought blacks and whites together, the story of Joe Louis is inspiring. Significantly enlivened by Kadir Nelson's stunning paintings.


"With stunning art and dramatic storytelling, Nelson and de la Peña recount the story behind the 1938 boxing match between American champ Joe Louis and 'Hitler's German,' Max Schmeling." 02/01/2011

"De la Pena's succinct text and Nelson's intensely beautiful paintings don't require much more time than Louis needed for Schmeling. But some 70 years later, the story is no less stirring." - David Margolick 04/10/2011
