Description by

In the true Olympic spirit, HBO Sports presents JOE LOUIS: AMERICA'S HERO...BETRAYED, a profile of Joe Louis, the greatest heavyweight boxer of his time who transcended not only his race, but also the sport of boxing, to personify America's struggle with the Nazis during WWII.

Product Description:

When Joe Louis defeated the German boxer Max Schmeling in 1938, it helped symbolize the triumph of democracy over the rising tide of Nazism. In so doing, he won over both white and black fans, becoming a shining emblem for America and a source of pride for black Americans. Nevertheless, the heavyweight boxer's story is also one of combating racism and rising to the top despite enormous odds against him. This documentary from HBO tells the inspiring, maddening, and moving story of one of America's true heroes and his legacy. Included here are interviews with Louis's son, Jimmy Carter, Maya Angelou, Jerry Lewis, and many others.
