New Haven Free Film Series: The Trials of Muhammad Ali
Third film in our free movie series!
Before Kaepernick took a knee, Ali took a plea in 1971. Muhammad Ali was sentenced to 5 years for refusing to fight in Vietnam on moral grounds. Ali’s story resonates far beyond the boxing ring, striking issues of race and solidarity and the role of athletes in public life.
