Muhammad Ali R.I.P.

He was a great human being and inspiring activist.

if you have not seen it, Leon Gast's 1996 documentary 'When We Were Kings' is an absolute must see.
mainly about the 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle" Ali/Foreman championship match, but also offers much insight to MA's life perspective during that era and is an inspiring film (which won Academy Award for best documentary and took its director over 2 decades to make + finance for release).
