About Muhammad Ali

Portrait of Muhammah Ali

Portrait by Robert Shetterly courtesy of Americans Who Tell the Truth.

Muhammad Ali

Boxer : b. 1942 - 2016

If I thought going to war would bring freedom and equality to twenty-two million of my people, they wouldn’t have to draft me. I’d join tomorrow. But I either have to obey the laws of the land or the laws of Allah. I have nothing to lose by standing up and following my beliefs. We’ve been in jail for four hundred years.
