Trivia Question: What boxer was known as “The Galveston Giant” and “The Great White Hope”?

Answer: Jack Johnson

Johnson became the first Black man to be named the World Heavyweight Champion. During a time when segregation was still enforced, he defeated James Jeffries in a major moment for integration. Sadly, race riots followed Johnson’s victory because many White Americans believed it was an outrage to let a Black man box a White one.
