Summary
This first part of the film follows Jack Johnson's remarkable journey from his humble beginnings in Galveston, Texas, to his entry into the world of professional boxing, where, in turn-of-the-century Jim Crow America, the heavyweight championship was an exclusively "white title." In 1908 Johnson became the first African-American to earn the title Heavyweight Champion of the World. On July 4, 1910, ex-champion Jim Jeffries, the new "Great White Hope," challenged the champion. The fight was billed as the Battle of the Century. Despite a hostile crowd and a steady stream of racial epithets hurled from Jeffries's corner, Johnson won an easy victory, provoking race riots all around the country.
