Tnb Iam 2021 | The Trials Of Muhammad Ali + Panel + Performance

Thursday 2 December 2021

Emmy award-winning documentary exploring Muhammad Ali’s relationship with Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam during the Vietnam War era.

 

To mark Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM), TNBFC is screening THE TRIALS OF MUHAMMAD ALI in partnership with Newham Council, Black Starline and Black History Studies.

The Trials of Muhammad Ali covers the explosive crossroads of Ali’s life. When Cassius Clay becomes Muhammad Ali, his conversion to Islam and refusal to serve in the Vietnam War leave him banned from boxing and facing a five-year prison sentence. Ali’s choice of belief and conscience over fame and fortune resonates far beyond the boxing ring, striking issues of race, faith and identity that continue to confront us all today.
