Ali: an American hero

takes a glimpse into the struggles and triumphs of a living legend. From his roots as a young boy in Louisville, through his religious conversion, two marriages, crusades for the common man and, of course, his twice rise to heavyweight champ, Muhammad Ali's story is nothing less than remarkable. David Ramsey gives a powerful portrayal of the sensitive Ali, while he battles discrimination and persecution, using courage to find his way through some of the most difficult times in recent USA history.
