Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson

I haven't seen the documentary as I have a barely functioning TV with no cable (anyone want to tape it and send it my way?), but, as a result of my dad's fondness for the sport of boxing, I read about Jack Johnson and since I was child I have always been fascinated with his story. I've also been tracking the reports on the documentary and PBS, as usual, has a contextual site for the documentary:

NPR's Report on Ken Burn's Documentary (includes a very intriguing video preview)
