THE TRIALS OF MUHAMMAD ALI

When charismatic fighter Cassius Clay famously embraced Islam and renamed himself Muhammad Ali in the late 1960s, the boxing icon came under fire for refusing to serve in the Vietnam War over his religious beliefs. Utilizing incredible archival footage and new interviews from the people who were there, this enlightening film examines the tumultuous period in Ali's life that saw him forced into a legal battle with the U.S. government which almost cost him his livelihood. – AP
