The imagined story of what followed 22-year-old Muhammad Ali’s 1964 victory over heavyweight champion Sonny Liston. Sat ringside are Malcolm X, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown.
The film explores the personal and political conflicts faced by the men — balancing their public image in a world where the pinnacle of success for a black person was to be a sportsperson or entertainer, alongside their drive to fight for black liberation. The conversations that followed were not without conflict and King’s depictions of their lives apart from each other is as much a testament to the strength of their character as it is the power of the film’s thrilling narrative. This was a meeting of minds on a historic night. Together they were to become more than the sum of their parts, opening up the civil rights conversation even as they acknowledged the backlash they faced.
