Community Cinema: 'The Trials of Muhammad Ali' Feb. 24

By Lynda Bachelor

Film: The Trials of Muhammad Ali

Hands-on K-State will show the film "The Trials of Muhammad Ali" as part of its Community Cinema series, at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 24, in 103 Leadership Studies Building.

Bill Siegel directs the story of the famed boxer’s biggest bout of all: his battle to overturn the prison sentence he received for refusing U.S. military service. The film explores Ali’s exile years when he was banned from boxing and found himself in the crosshairs of conflicts concerning race, religion, and wartime dissent.
