Jack Johnson and his first wife, Etta. Jack Johnson was the world heavyweight boxing champ from 1908 through 1915. He was married 3 times - each time to a white woman, which was of course unusual at the time.

Etta Terry Duryea (pictured) was his first wife. She committed suicide in 1912, about 1 year after they were married.
