Joe Louis was born in a shack outside of Lafayette, Alabama on May 3 1914. The grandson of slaves, he was the seventh of eight children born to Munroe Barrow a sharecropper, and Lillie Barrow. Louis family was poor. He and his siblings slept three and four to a bed. When Joe was two years old his father committed to a asylum. He went to Bronson Vocational School. While in school, he played the violin.
Joe became boxing's heavyweight champion with his defeat of James J. Braddock in 1937. Nicknamed the "Brown Bomber," his knockout of Germany's Max Schmeling in 1938 made him a national hero. He also established a record by retaining the championship for twelve years. Joe was on the magazine for boxer of the year and was the first boxer honored on a U.S. postage stamp.
Joe was important because he was widely regarded as the first African American to achieve the status of a nationwide hero within the U.S. He was also a focal point of anti-Nazi sentiment leading up to and during WWII. Lastly, he was very important in integrating the game of golf. Joe broke the sport's color barrier in America by appearing under a sponsor's special privileges in a PGA event in 1952.
