Summary
Fifty years after he coined the iconic phrase Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, Drew 'Bundini' Brown remains one of boxing's most mysterious and misunderstood figures. His impact on the sport and the culture at large is undeniable.

On being discharged, he settled in New York City and spent wild nights in the jazz joints of Harlem, making a name for himself as the charismatic street philosopher and poet some called 'Fast Black.' He married a white woman from a family of Orthodox Jewish immigrants, in dramatic defiance of 1950s cultural norms, and later appeared in films such as the blaxploitation classic, Shaft
