There is hardly a face more recognizable than that of The Greatest. Ali on canvas as in life cannot be silenced. In fact, a strip of the vintage Nation of Islam periodical “Muhammad Speaks”, affirms this fact. Images of protests against war, resistance to imperial domination, and prayers to the Divine formulate Ali’s suit, bow tie, and the shadows of his face. A radiant yellow background projects confidence and warmth behind golden selections of clippings that together depict a fiery young activist.
