It follows him to a momentous meeting with Branch Rickey of the no less legendary Brooklyn Dodgers who brought Robinson in as a professional player to the previously all-white sport. THE JOE LOUIS STORY profiles the eponymous hero in boxing and racial equality. Louis became heavyweight champ in the '30s despite overwhelming prejudice.
