About this event

Please join NMPBS for a screening of excerpts from the new Ken Burn documentary Muhammad Ali. Then join a discussion about Racism, Materialism, and Militarism with guest speakers from UNM Peace and Global Justice Studies Program moderated by Dr. Jamal Martin, Director UNM Peace and Global Justice Studies Program. Special guest speaker Enid Trucios-Haynes, Professor of Law at University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and Director of the university's Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice. Panelists also include Jim Harvey, Director of Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice and Rosemary Blanchard, Human Rights Educator.

The title, Racism, Materialism, and Militarism, refers to the anti-Vietnam War speech given by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1967.

Muhammad Ali was one of the best-known men of the 20th century, a three-time heavyweight boxing champion who captivated millions of fans throughout the world with his mesmerizing combination of speed, grace, and power in the ring, and charm and playful boasting outside of it. At the height of his fame, he took American life — the racial prejudices, the religious biases, the role of celebrities, the role of sports in society — and refashioned it in his own image.
