Screening of "The Trials of Muhammad Ali"

  • Ford Foundation 320 E 43rd St New York, NY 10017 (map)

ATTENTION MEMBERS AND FRIENDS

Join us for a screening of the film "The Trials of Muhammad Ali", presented by the Ford Foundation and Philanthropy New York.

“The Trials of Muhammad Ali” traces the champion boxer's lifelong journey of spiritual transformation and his decision to sacrifice fame and fortune for faith and conscience. The film covers his toughest bouts: his controversial decision to join the Nation of Islam, his battle to overturn a five-year prison sentence for refusing military service during the Vietnam War and his struggle with Parkinson's. At each stage—from poet to pariah to global ambassador for peace—Ali faces challenges that go far beyond the boxing ring and ultimately encompass issues of power, race, faith and identity that confront us all.
