Check out, if you have the chance, the HBO documentary Joe Louis - America's Hero, Betrayed. Worth it for the boxing clips alone, along with some excellent interviews that give insight into the man and his historical moment.
Some Joe Louis highlights:
Heavyweight Championship: Joe Louis vs. James Braddock - 1937
Joe Louis vs. Max Schmeling I - 1936
Joe Louis vs. Max Schemling II - 1938
