Muhammad Ali the movie

Ever the entertainer, Muhammad has appeared in several motion pictures, including the big-screen adaptation of his first autobiography, The Greatest, playing himself. His life has been the subject of numerous films, including the Academy Award-winning documentary When We Were Kings and Michael Mann’s biopic, ALI, starring Will Smith.

Muhammad starred in the television film, Freedom Road, and has made guest numerous appearances on numerous popular television series ranging from Diff’rent Strokes to Touched by an Angel. He also starred on Broadway in the short-lived musical, Big Time Buck White, and recorded a popular album, I Am The Greatest!

Muhammad recently published a memoir entitled, The Soul of a Butterfly: Reflections on Life’s Journey, in which he discusses the meaning of religion, forgiveness, and some of the defining moments in his life and career. He is also the co-author of Healing: A Journal of Tolerance and Understanding and The Greatest: My Own Story.

In 2005, Muhammad opened the Muhammad Ali Center in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. In addition to displaying a selection of his memorabilia, the Center’s exhibits focus on themes of peace, social responsibility, respect, and personal growth. In 2006, he partnered with CKX, Inc. to form Muhammad Ali Enterprises for the licensing of his name, image, and likeness and to continue promoting his cultural and philosophical legacy throughout the world.

Muhammad has nine children: Maryum, Rasheda, Jamillah, Hana, Laila, Khaliah, Miya, Muhammad, and Asaad. He is married to the former Lonnie Williams of Louisville, whom he has known since her family moved across the street from the Clay family when she was 6 years old.

Whether promoting tolerance and understanding, feeding the hungry, studying his religion, or reaching out to children in need, Muhammad Ali is devoted to making the world a better place for all people. No athlete has ever contributed more to the life of his country, or the world, than Muhammad Ali.
