Muhammed Ali's Childhood Story
The defining life-lessons for Cassius Clay (later Muhammad Ali) did not take place inside the ring, nor did such lessons take place in front of television cameras or movie lights. Rather, the lessons Cassius learned were during childhood, in the face of racial prejudice, economic disadvantage, and an inferior educational system. This film explores the stage that was set which ultimately led to one of the greatest civil rights and religious leaders the World has ever known, tracing Muhammad Ali's incredible life journey, starting with the love of his adoring mother, Odessa Clay, his father, Cassius, Sr., and his brother, Rudolph Clay (Rahaman Ali), at 3302 Grand Avenue, Louisville, KY.
