From AIS Bulletin #237 April 1980 Introducing LITTLE BLACK BELT (Niswonger'80) SDB 1-77: Knockout X Gingerbreadman, 12" DDNl. This is a dark purple (black) with a pale blue beard that makes a very attractive combination. It's vigorous and a dependable bloomer. It's among the first SDB's to bloom. I think you will like it. $10.00.
