THE RED AND WHITE BIKE

2016-11-23-00-09-26The story starts with a boy’s red and white bike. It is 1954. Joe Martin is a policeman in Louisville Kentucky, but he teaches boxing in the gym in the evenings, too. Two young black boys come into the gym. One of them sees Joe.

“Excuse me,” he says. “Are you Joe Martin, the policeman?”

“That’s right,” Joe says. “What’s the problem?”

“It’s my new bike,” the boy says. “It’s red and white. It was in front of this building, and now it’s not here.”

The young boy isn’t happy and very angry.

“I’m going to find the boy with my bike. Then I’m going to whup him!”

He says again and again. Joe Martin smiles. The boy is about 12 years old. He’s tall with long legs and he is thin.

“Can you box?” Joe asks.

“No, I can’t box,” he says, “but I want to whup the boy.”

2016-11-23-00-06-17Joe smiles again.

“Come here to the gym first. Maybe I can teach you.”

“OK,” the boy says. “I’d like that.”

“Good,” Joe says. “What’s your name?”

“Cassius,” the boy says. “Cassius Clay.”

Joe doesn’t know it, but In only ten years that young black boy is going to be a World Boxing Champion!

After that, Cassius went to Joe Martin’s gym 6 days a week. He was strong and quick on his feet, and he started boxing with the other boys in the gym. He didn’t ask for money, of course. He boxed because he liked it. He usually won his fights. He was good! But he wasn’t a good student at school. He had a lot of problems. He was a good boy from a good family. He was friendly and his teachers liked him. But school work was very difficult for him. The only important thing in the world for him that was boxing. In 6 years he had 108 fights and he won 100 of them. Then in 1960 he went to Rome and boxed for the United States.

The Olympic Games

2016-11-23-00-06-53In 196O Cassius was only 18 years old. He was in Rome for the Olympic Games. He beat every opponent and he won an Olympic medal for the United States. He was an Olympic boxing champion. And he didn’t take off his Olympic medal for weeks night or day. At home in Louisville he was famous. But he was black. And in Louisville in the 1960s there were places for white people and places for black people. In many Hotels, theatres, Stores, and buses, black people didn’t sit with white people. One day Cassius wanted to buy a drink in a “white” store. It was a problem.

“Whites only,” they said.

“But I am the Olympic boxing champion! I’m famous!” Cassius said.

“Whites only,” they all said. “Go away!”

Cassius was very unhappy about that.

“I’m going to be the world’s champion,” he said. “ I’m going to be important. Then white people are going to sit down with me and listen to me.”

After the Olympic Games Jesus started to fight for money. Boxing wasn’t the game now. It was his work. He moved from Louisville to Miami. He went to a new gym in Miami, and he had new friends. One of them was Angelo Dundee. He worked with Cassius in the gym and was always with him for his fights.
