  • Nation of Islam Paper Featured in Documentary Film
    Some of CRL’s extensive holdings in African-American newspapers were recently put to use in a documentary aired on the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). The Trials of Muhammad Ali, produced by Kartemquin Films, explores the period in which the famed fighter went from heavyweight champion of the world and sports icon to a controversial and polarizing political figure. It examines one event in particular: his refusal to serve in the Vietnam War, a decision inspired by his membership in the Nation of Islam.
