Every hero has an origin story. Before Muhammad Ali became one of the world’s greatest boxers and civil rights advocates, he was Cassius Clay. Step into the ring with 12-year old Cassius as he navigates friendship, family and learning to fight for himself and his community. Told with surprising humor and heart, this play takes you inside Jim Crow-era Louisville to see the beginnings of an American hero.

This is a co-production with Black Theatre Troupe at the Helen K. Mason Performing Arts Center.

ASL performance: Sunday, 2/24/19 at 2 p.m.
