  • Story of Boxing Great Jack Johnson Scores TKO

    by Bruce Chadwick

    The play "The Royale" is an absorbing story, a mixture of history and sports and a scary look at a highly racist America in the middle of the Jim Crow era. It is full of hysteria and history and a study of a titanic black fighter in a world of sports dominated by white men.
