John Lewis

Free

Presented by Serendipity Institute for Black Arts and Heritage

 

A noteworthy figure in Leicester’s early Black community was Larry Gains, the Coloured Heavyweight Champion of the World, who lived and trained in Leicester during the 1930s.  Despite rising to become one of the top heavyweights of his era, he was denied the opportunity to become World Champion due to the bar on Black boxers competing for the title.  The exhibition celebrates as legendary figure in sport across Leicester, Britain and the world.
