Description

Limited edition release by K.A. Williams II that celebrates and honors the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali.

Muhammad Ali was a professional boxer and civil rights activist who lived from 1942 to 2016. He is widely regarded as one of the most important and renowned 20th-century sports figures, with some suggesting he might be the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time. In 1999, he was designated Sportsman of the Century by Sports Illustrated and Sports Personality of the Century by the BBC.

Muhammad Ali's work on behalf of racial equality began in Louisville, Kentucky, where he was aware of and had experienced racism and white supremacy first-hand. His strong commitment to his boxing career was matched by his deep conviction that he had a higher calling. He constantly challenged racism, segregation, U.S. hegemony, and Jim Crow laws.

Available as a hand embellished giclee on canvas that measures 30x30 inches in size. Edition size of 25pcs. Ships unstretched and rolled in a tube.
