Community Cinema - The Trials of Muhammad Ali
Community Cinema is a public education and civic engagement initiative featuring monthly screenings of films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. Our upcoming film, The Trials of Muhammad Ali, is the story of the famed boxer’s toughest bout of all: his battle to overturn the prison sentence he received for refusing U.S. military service. The film 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. The film will be followed by a guest speaker (to be announced) and discussion.
