Arts, Culture & Fun: Preview Screening of The Trials of Muhammad Ali
Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Arts, Culture & Fun presents a special advanced screening of the film The Trials of Muhammad Ali, with boxer Lucius Benson.
The Trials of Muhammad Ali covers Ali's toughest bout: his battle to overturn the five-year prison sentence he received for refusing U.S. military service. The film explores Ali's exile years when he was banned from boxing and found himself in the crosshairs of conflicts concerning race, religion, and wartime dissent.
Guest speaker: Middleweight boxer Lucius Benson!
