Muhammad Ali (1942-2016)

June 10, 2016

"Don’t count the days, make the days count." – Muhammad Ali

What more can be said about the Greatest, Muhammad Ali?

That he was the century’s finest athlete? That he was the voice of a generation? That he held the heart of America as he lit the 1996 Olympic flame? That his kindness transcended the brutality of the sport that brought him to worldwide attention?

We leave it to the orators and writers of our time to eulogize and celebrate his life.

As you look through Nashville Public Library's collection of film, photos and words, we invite you to re-discover the Ali that spoke to you.
