Jack Johnson Beats Jim Jeffries

Jack Johnson successfully defended his heavyweight boxing title on July 4, 1910 by knocking out Jim Jeffries in the 15th round.  Following the fight, several cities forbid the showing of the tapes of the bout because of some uprisings and ten deaths after the black champion champion won.  The deaths were in the cities of Baltimore, Atlanta, St. louis, Cincinnati, and Washington.
