Another excellent episode in this PBS series – “In Their Own Words.” Muhammad Ali was truly a larger than life character. He did “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.” We never watched boxing in my house, but Ali transcended boxing taking on all aspects of existence; racial equality, political operations, religious understanding. He met all his challenges as a proud, talented, OUTSPOKEN black man and he made an enormous impact on America in his own way. Worth watching.
