Arts, Culture & Fun presents a special advanced screening of the film The Trials of Muhammad Ali.  Meet the director, Bill Siegel!

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.

See the film before it airs on PBS!  RSVP by emailing manhattan.acf@parks.nyc.gov or calling (212) 234-9607.  Space is limited, so reserve early.
