In here Wade will tell us about his favorite Ken Burns series

Recommended Posts

My favorite Ken Burns series is Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson.


It's a short series (2 episodes) but that doesn't detract from Jack's story as a black man who was utterly unafraid to look white America's racism in the eye and laugh at it.


And also punch it...because he was a heavyweight boxer after all!
