Muhammad Ali was a one of the greatest athletes in human history and a genius.
He was an Adonis for most of his seventy four years here with us and man of wit and grace.
You can not explain the life of Muhammad Ali by making him into a Black Joe Hill, a muscular Howard Zinn, a testicular Gloria Steinem, or a good humored Donald Trump.
I understand Muhammad Ali by listening to Errol Garner's April in Paris from Concert by the Sea
Its is all here -humor, power, love, artistry, joy, righteous anger, gratitude, humilty and grace in the hands of two man blessed by God.
