Film & Discussion: The Trials of Muhammad Ali

No conventional sports documentary, The Trials of Muhammad Ali investigates its extraordinary and often complex subject's life outside the boxing ring. From joining the controversial Nation of Islam and changing his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali, to his refusal to serve in the Vietnam War in the name of protesting racial inequality, to his global humanitarian work, Muhammad Ali remains an inspiring and controversial figure.

Since then, he and his wife Rosalie have moved to California, so we're especially excited that Bob returns each year with his trio to perform with JRC's Adult and Children's Choirs.
