At the bottom of the painting is an image from a fight between Muhammad Ali and Sonny Liston and a famous quote from Ali that reads: "I am America. I am the part you won't recognize. But get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me."
