Muhammad Ali in conversation with Studs Terkel

From The WFMT Radio Network | 56:25

Studs Terkel was a champion of a working folk and icons alike, and sometimes, he even managed to bring the two together. In this 1975 interview with Muhammad Ali, Studs asks him about how racism can be defeated by the power of outsiders coming to work together.

Muhammad Ali also reads excerpts from his book – The Greatest: My Own Story (with Richard Durham) – and discusses his life, touching on his childhood in St. Louis, not being served at a restaurant in his hometown after winning the 1964 Olympic gold medal, why people root for and against him, and fighting for what you believe.
