Event Details

Join us for Community Cinema’s February film "The Trials of Muhammad Ali."

A story of the famed boxer's toughest bout of all: his battle to overturn the prison sentence he received for refusing U.S. military service. The film explores Ali's exile years when he was banned from boxing and found himself in the crosshairs of conflicts concerning race, religion, and wartime dissent.

Afterwards we’ll discuss the film with community partners.

 Please note: The program and film starts at 11am, so please plan to arrive at least a few minutes early.

Community Cinema is a free monthly screening series presents fascinating documentaries from the Emmy-Award winning PBS series Independent Lens followed by lively discussions that connect films to local organizations and resources. Films are shown from September to June every second Saturday of the month at 11am.
