I've never heard Jack Johnson speak before watching this video. He seemed like a really nice person.

Great find.

Even in this film he gives off such an aura of nerve and audacity,It's very hard to deny such character.

Truly a pioneer for not only black athletes,but for all modern athletes in which they conduct themselves.

Never,ever underestimate the time of which Jack Johnson lived and conducted himself in.

Great character? without question

Great fighter of his generation? Absolutely

But a great human being? Debatable
