"Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like A Bee"!  Everyone who hears this quote knows it belongs to the "The Greatest", the Invincible,  most Idolized Boxer in American History or the History of the World,  Muhammad Ali.  The African American Biography Series of 2013 brings to you the life of Muhammad Ali.  Muhammad Ali is an American Heavyweight Champion Boxer, Philanthropist and Social Activist.  He was born in 1942 with the name Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr.  Muhammad Ali is a beloved Cultural Icon who was vilified during the 1960s for publicly refusing to be conscripted into the U.S. Military based upon his religious beliefs and his opposition to the Vietnam War.  At the age of 22 he won the World Heavyweight Championship from Sonny Liston.  He was still Cassius Clay.  In 1964, he changed his name to Muhammad Ali after joining the Nation of Islam.  Three years later in 1967 Muhammed Ali was arrested and found guilty of draft evasion charges, stripped of his boxing title and his boxing license was suspended.  He was not imprisoned, but did not fight again for nearly four years while his appeal worked its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court where it was eventually successful.  Thank you for listening to Blogtalkradio,  I'm Laura Gall and the name of my show is "You Talk Too Much".  Today is Thursday, June 13.  The year is 2013.  My call in number is 1-714-242-5273.  This is Black History on Internet Radio.
