Muhammad Ali

(born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr.) American former professional boxer, generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the sport's history. A controversial and polarizing figure during his early career, Ali is today widely regarded for the skills he displayed in the ring plus the values he exemplified outside of it: religious freedom, racial justice and the triumph of principle over expedience.

About Self-determination

I am America.
I am the part you won't recognize.
But get
used to me.
Black, confident, cocky;
my name, not yours;
my religion, not yours;
my goals, my own;
get used to me.
