A documentary about Leone Jacovacci, a black Italian boxer who discredited 20th century Italian dictator Benito Mussolini’s racist ideology by winning a European boxing title is making waves in Italy and abroad, reports Variety. “The Duce’s Boxer” tells the story of Jacovacci, an African Italian born in the Congo who won the 1928 European middleweight title by beating Mario Bosisio, a white Italian boxer supported by the country’s Fascist leaders, in front of 40,000 fans in Rome’s National Stadium.

Mussolini, outraged, then ordered Jacovacci and his achievement erased from Italy’s history books. But 89 years later, Jacovacci’s story has been resurrected. “The Duce’s Boxer” premieres today (March 21) in 25 Italian cities to mark the U.N. International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Based on the book “Black Roman” by Italian sociologist Mauro Valeri

Timothy Caughman: Victim of Domestic Terrorism


Rest in Peace Timothy Caughman. This is the face of Domestic Terrorism and the real true face of America. Some will mourn his passing but most will just shrug their shoulders at the death of yet another Black Man murdered by a KKK Trump disciple. The inbred evil and wickedness in America sounds the death-knell of the USA. America’s fall shall come from within not from outside forces.
