Description

The world's most famous athlete that ever was, heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali. From the moment young Ali wandered into a Louisville, Kentucky youth boxing program, the sport became his life. An Olympic champion at age 18, Ali rose quickly to the top.

More than any other man in the 60s, Ali spread the word that "Black is beautiful." Colorful and funny, he spouted crazy poetry to rile and upset opponents and prove that boxers weren't all just tongue-tied gorillas. His conversion to Islam in the 1960s pitched him into the middle of the national conflict over race and the Vietnam War. Refusing military induction on religious grounds, Ali was stripped of his heavyweight title but came back to regain both his title and the public's love.

This is the story of a talented, generous, and surprisingly peaceful man. Reading this book, you'll understand why Ali is still possibly the most widely loved man in the world today. You'll also learn important things about American religious freedom.
