it's great to see all that history captured but it's horrible the way joe was treated. here's a man...donated all his purses to the army...hounded for taxes on those donations and basically died in poverty. meanwhile, an american company, coca cola rewards the 'enemy' with business and essentially makes him a rich man. i will never understand racism. his story is both triumph and tragedy. may he rest in peace.
