Muhammad Ali 1942-2016 (site)

Muhammad Ali – en folkets kæmper. By Brian Richardson (Socialistisk Arbejderavis, nr.352, 7. juni 2016; kun online). “Muhammad Ali fascinerede verden, da han blev verdensmester i sværvægtsboksning i 1964. Han kombinerede ekstraordinær ynde og hurtighed i ringen med en stor personlighed udenfor.”

Muhammad Ali: Free Black Man. By Malik Miah (Against the Current, Issue 183, July-August 2016). “Black pride and determination was his biggest impact for people of African descent …”

A threat laid low (Weekly Worker, Issue , 9 June 2016). “Once considered a dangerous radical and traitor, Muhammad Ali died an establishment hero. Paul Demarty wonders what this says about our era.”

Continues to rise: Muhammad Ali (1942-2016). By Lewis R. Gordon (Viewpoint Magazine, June 7, 2016). “As a professional pugilist, he inspired millions. As a political radical, he carried this conviction beyond the ring, fiercely denouncing racism and imperialism.”

“The Greatest”: Ishmael Reed on the untold history of Muhammad Ali (Democracy Now!, June 06, 2016). “We talk about the life and legacy of boxing champion and activist Muhammad Ali with educator and writer Ishmael Reed, author of the book, “The Complete Muhammad Ali”.

Who will follow the example of Muhammad Ali’s principled stand in our day? By David Walsh (World Socialist Web Site, 6 June 2016). “A product of rebellious times, Ali earned the admiration and respect of tens of millions around the globe for his act of protest.” 2016alinigger2.jpg

Boomayiye – he shook up the world. By Graham Campbell (RS21: Revolutionary Socialism in the 21st Century, June 6, 2016). “Who can ever forget the Rumble in the Jungle making the Lingala chant of ‘Ali-Boomayiye’ (Ali – kill him!) an international slogan of major Black liberation …”

‘I don’t have to be what you want me to be’. By Kenan Malik (Pandaemonium, June 5, 2016). “… it is difficult properly to comprehend the hatred and revulsion that once greeted him, or the radicalism and hope that he embodied.”

What made Muhammad Ali the greatests. By John Molyneux (Socialist Worker, Ireland, 4 June 2016). “And let’s remember also that precisely what made him so great actually made him hated by the establishment and the media at the time.”

’I just wanted to be free’: The radical reverberations of Muhammad Ali. By Dave Zirin (The Nation, June 4, 2016). “Ali was shaped by his times. But his death should remind us that he also shaped them.”

The hidden history of Muhammad Ali. By Dave Zirin (Jacobin: Reason in Revolt, 4 June 2016). “Muhammad Ali’s resistance to racism and war belongs not only to the 1960s, but the common future of humanity.”

Muhammad Ali and the Black Panthers. By Dave Zirin (The Nation, February 18, 2016). “Muhammad Ali wasn’t the ‘civil rights saint’ that he is sometimes portrayed as today.”

This film is a knockout. By Dave Zirin (, August 21, 2013). Review of the documentary The Trials of Muhammad Ali (2013). “The best documentary ever made about the most famous draft resister in human history …”

Greater than the Cassius of old (, June 6, 2016; reprint from September 2008). An excerpt from Dave Zirin’s book, A People’s History of Sports in the United States (The New Press; 2008), in which he explained how Ali’s impact on sports and American society continues to this day.

The hidden history of Muhammad Ali: revolt of the black athlete. By David Zirin (International Socialist Review, Issue 33, January-February 2004). “The hidden history of Muhammad Ali and the revolt of the Black athlete in the 1960s is a living history. By reclaiming it from the powers that be, we can understand more than the struggles of the 1960s.”

Ali & the black struggles of the 1960s. By Hugo Pierre (Socialism Today, Issue 72, February 2003). “One individual who bridged the 1960s anti-war and black liberation movements was the world champion boxer, Muhammad Ali.”

Muhammad Ali: a hero of the twentieth century. By Mike Marqusee (Workers Liberty, Issue 62, April 2000). “We must re-insert Ali in his historical context, and that means principally his relationship to the great social movements of the 1960s.”

The time of his life. By Brian Richardson (Socialist Review, Issue 232, July/August 1999). Review of Mike Marqusee, Redemption Song: Muhammad Ali and the Spirit of the Sixties (Verso, 1999). “Mike Marqusee has written a splendid book. He reclaims the legend of Muhammad Ali from corporate America and places the man back where he belongs.” See excerpt from the book: The baby figure of the giant mass: Mike Marqusee on Ali vs. Liston and its prehistory (Verso, Blog, 8 June 2016)

Billedtekst: “The ending of the second fight remains one of the most controversial in boxing history. Midway through the first round, Liston fell to the canvas, in what many have argued was not a legitimate knockdown. Referee Jersey Joe Walcott, a former world heavyweight champion himself, appeared confused after Ali refused to retreat to a neutral corner. Instead, Ali stood over his fallen opponent, gesturing and yelling at him, “Get up and fight, sucker!” The moment was captured by ringside photographer Neil Leifer, and has become one of the iconic images of sport. The photograph of the knockdown of this fight is one of the most heavily promoted photos in the history of the media” (Citat: Muhammad Ali vs Sonny Liston (25.5.1965).
