Muhammad Ali Institute Fall Programming
Muhammad Ali was a transformative humanitarian and a true champion who had the courage and conviction to make the world a better place. We remember him as he wished – as someone who helped people worldwide to “fight for freedom, justice and equality.” Our 2016-17 programming will focus on his lifelong commitment to these fundamental human values. Muhammad Ali inspired so many and brought people together in life as well as death. We hope our work will support and inspire our community to come together as we consider what it means to fight for freedom, justice and equality today.
