Muhammad Ali – Documentary  – R.I.P.

This documentary features the early days of his career as Cassius Clay when he trained in Miami. It shows his title fights with Sonny Liston when he captured the Heavyweight Title the first time.

It also highlights the dire state of racial relations in the 1960’s and the effect of Ali especially after his conversion to Islam; and his refusal to enlist to fight in the Vietnam War on religious grounds.
