At the sound of the bell, young Cassius Clay takes his first step into the ring and starts becoming the man the world would come to know as Muhammad Ali. Before he became one of the world’s greatest boxers and civil rights advocates, he was a 12-year old boy navigating friendship, family and learning to fight for himself and his community in the segregated South of the 1950’s. Step into the ring with Cassius (and his world-famous rhymes and sense of humor) and learn about his journey to become an American hero.
