Muhammad Ali

Performer

In 1969, during a period in which the iconic three-time heavyweight boxing champion of the world had been stripped of his title and banned from fighting owing to his refusal to respond to his Vietnam War draft notice, Ali starred on Broadway in the musical Buck White. Billed by his birth name, Cassius Clay, he played a militant black lecturer who addresses a meeting organized by a black political group in Oscar Brown Jr.'s musical adaptation of Joseph Dolan Tuotti's Off-Broadway play Big Time Buck White.
