President Trump posthumously Pardon’s boxing’s first Black Heavyweight Champion Jack Johnson

President Donald Trump pardoned black boxing icon Jack Johnson Thursday, posthumously nullifying the heavyweight champion’s conviction handed down by an all-white jury for an interracial relationship more than 100 years ago.

Johnson’s story was brought to Trump’s attention in recent months by actor Sylvester Stallone, who famously played the scrappy underdog boxer Rocky Balboa in the “Rocky” film series. Trump tweeted in late April that he was considering a full pardon for Johnson.
