Community Cinema: The Trials of Muhammad Ali at the C. Blythe Andrews, Jr. Public Library

Tuesday, February 4 at 6:00 p.m.
C. Blythe Andrews, Jr. Public Library, 2607 E. Dr. M. L. King, Jr. Blvd. in Tampa

In celebration of Black History Month, enjoy a special showing of The Trials of Muhammad Ali. The film, by Bill Siegel, covers Ali’s toughest bout: his battle to overturn the five-year prison sentence he received for refusing U.S. military service and explores Ali’s exile years when he was banned from boxing and found himself in the crosshairs of conflicts concerning race, religion, and wartime dissent.

A panel discussion will follow the screening and feature Dr. Abraham Khan, Associate Professor, Africana Studies at the University of South Florida, local attorney Delano Stewart, and student minister Ali Muhammad.

For adults.
