The Trials of Muhammad Ali DVD


Region-Free / Multi-Region DVD in NTSC format The Trials of Muhammad Ali covers the explosive crossroads of Ali’s life. When Cassius Clay becomes Muhammad Ali, his conversion to Islam and refusal to serve in the Vietnam War leave him banned from boxing and facing a five-year prison sentence. Ali’s choice of belief and conscience over fame and fortune resonates far beyond the boxing ring, striking issues of race, faith and identity that continue to confront us all today. "Richly textured and exhaustively researched...fresh clips and new voices that make Ali come alive... a gift." — Sports Illustrated "Complex and involving... gripping." — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times "Magnificently concise... makes you feel [Ali's] radicalism all over again." — Wesley Morris, Grantland
