Sewer Tile Pottery Carved Sculpture of African-American Brown Bomber Joe Louis
Joe Louis, the Brown Bomber was active in the late 1930's to the late 1940's. Born in Alabama and moved to Detroit at age ten... after being visited by a gang of the Klan. Let's not let that happen again. Best known for his professional record, but also for standing up for civil rights all his life. In 1934, Louis won his first professional title (for which he earned $59.00) and went on to win all 12 of his fights in 1934, ten by knockouts.
Fine brown clay with skilled hands, Titled by hand but note on base is illegible.
