NPR stories about Herb Boyd
Most boxing fans reserve the phrase "pound for pound" — used to describe a boxer of tremendous skill, regardless of the weight category — for the man considered the best fighter in history: Sugar Ray Robinson. A new biography charts the fighter's rise and fall in and out of the ring.
Herb Boyd documents an era in We Shall Overcome: The History of the Civil Rights Movement as It Happened. The book comes with CDs narrated by activists and actors Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee.
