Following the early years of Cassius Clay, from bright-eyed rookie to world heavyweight champion and from working class intellectual to one of America’s most influential civil rights campaigners. The film reveals how the teachings of Elijah Muhammad, reinforced by a friendship with revolutionary preacher, Malcolm X, set Clay on the journey to become Cassius X, before his induction to the Nation of Islam and ascension to the name of the great Muhammad Ali.
After the film, The New Black Film Collective’s Jasmine Bernard-Brooks will be in conversation with Dr Marcellus Baz, CEO of Switch Up and Nottingham School of Boxing.
