5.0 out of 5 stars In Black &White The Untold Story of jesse owens & Joe Louis, 27 Jan. 2003
By 
This review is from: In Black and White: The Untold Story of Joe Louis and Jesse Owens (Hardcover)
McRae has written another Masterpiece.
For sports lovers & historians alike this is a must read.
McRae's research is second to none & his writing is informative, fluid & compassionate - he offers real insight into the lives of both superstars as well as a telling narrative on America's struggle with racism since the 1920's. The spirit of the Olympics is personified in Jesse Owens, the power-hungry values of Olympic administration are personified by Avery Brundage while
the rotten core of Boxing administration is exposed throughout the book. One cannot fail to be moved by this book especially by both the dignity, achievements & human failings of both sporting icons.
