The final major event/fundraiser held by the Beaufort Three-Century project will be next weekend's screening of a yet-to-be released Joe Fraizer bio pic called "Joe Frazier: When the Smoke Clears."

Here is the film website's synopsis of the bio pic:

Frazier: When the Smoke Clears" is a feature documentary film that shows
the real Joe Frazier for the first time, as he comes to terms with the past and
finds forgiveness for a man he once called a friend. It is the story of a man
loved by a son, a son who dreams of preserving his father's legacy, and of a
community, for whom Joe’s gym has been a sanctuary for the last three

You can watch a trailer of the biography here.

Frazier, a Beaufort native, has been in the news around here quite a bit lately as he in September received the Order of the Palmetto.
