Synopsis

Based on the early life of Muhammad Ali in Jim Crow Louisville, the play tells the story of a young man who, despite segregation and racism, believes his potential is unlimited. Encouraged by his first boxing coach, a white police officer, young Cassius realizes things will never change if he only focuses on personal success — he must also use his gifts to work for the good of his community.
