“The Trials of Muhammad Ali”—SOLD OUT


“An exclusive sneak preview of The Trials of Muhammad Ali, co-presented by DuSable Museum, Chicago Urban League and Kartemquin Films.”

Join us for a Pre Screening of the documentary “The Trials of Muhammad Ali”. Loren Hammonds writes…Directed by Bill Siegel and executive produced by Academy Award®-winner Leon Gast, 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. Partners include: Kartemquin Films and the Urban League
