From the Publisher
Young Muhammad Ali realized the inequalities in the US and across the world while experiencing segregation in his home state of Kentucky.
After having his bike stolen, Muhammad Ali discovered his first ever boxing gym—and an integrated one at that. Black and white boxers were welcome to train together; something that was revolutionary for the time.
Stop the War
The United States used to make all men join the military in mandatory drafts. They wanted Muhammad Ali to fight in the war with Vietnam, but as a Muslim, he didn't believe in war. He used his voice to advocate for peace.
Muhammad Ali is considered the greatest boxer of all time, but he wasn't just a fighter in the ring. He fought for things he believed in every day, which made him the greatest in other ways. Real strength comes from being true to yourself and your beliefs.
