The Greatest

“We at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture join the world in mourning the passing of the legendary athlete and humanitarian Muhammad Ali. His iconic performance in the ring was surpassed only by his actions on the world stage as an advocate for peace and justice. On behalf of the NMAAHC, I extend profound condolences to his family.

We are honored to preserve his legacy in our collections.”
