THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT. Please attend our other upcoming Chicago screenings, starting November 8th.
Directed by Bill Siegel, The Trials of Muhammad Ali is not merely a boxing documentary, but rather an examination of a specific time in America in which many of its citizens were ridiculed, jailed or exiled for choosing to stand up for their beliefs. Pulling no punches when dealing with the atmosphere of the time, the film boasts an amazing array of interviews from those who were there, including Ali’s family members, notable journalists and the current, controversial leader of the Nation of Islam, Rev. Dr. Louis Farrakhan. The electrifying persona of Muhammad Ali guides the story through a wealth of remarkable archival footage.
Presented by Kartemquin Films and the Chicago Urban League.
This event is FREE and open to the public. RSVP Here to attend: http://thetrialsofmuhammadali-estw.eventbrite.com/.
