Loz Loory's rating of the film The Trials of Muhammad Ali

A perfect documentary that weaves together all the political, social, and religious threads of Ali's life. It provides an exceptionally thorough and intelligent overview of the historical moment in which he lived. I only knew him as a boxer. Now I know him as a great American hero of the Civil Rights Movement. His sense of the need to protect his own freedom, at whatever cost, is an inspiring lesson for all citizens.
