Muhammad Ali is widely remembered as a dominant athlete and is celebrated for his boxing prowess; however, Ali also fought for social justice. He was active in the Civil Rights Movement and routinely spoke out against racism, imperialism, and militarization. He was a radical figure who, while a professional fighter, used his words and deeds to land his heaviest punches against bigotry, hatred, injustice. We need more warriors like Ali today.
With Ali’s passing on 3 June 2016, there have been many fitting tributes. To add to his commemoration, GHC member Sean Carleton offers a free colouring poster that can be downloaded here.
