Jack Johnson-- Black History Month
But he was something of an inventor too-- held a patent for improvements to the wrench. Bet you didn't know that.
Did you see the PBS special back in the day--" Unforgiveable Blackness"? The book
Bad Nigger! the National Impact of Jack Johnson
by Al-Tony Gilmore is also recommended.
And the Johnson inspired "The Great White Hope" with James Earl Jones.
America spared little hatred for this black man.
