And In This Corner…Cassius Clay Presented by Metro Theater Company
February 12—28, 2016, Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. 

Based on the early life of Muhammad Ali in Jim Crow Louisville, the play tells the story of a young man who, despite segregation and racism, believes his potential is unlimited. Encouraged by his first boxing coach, a white police officer, young Cassius realizes things will never change if he only focuses on personal success — he must also use his gifts to work for the good of his community. A play by Idris Goodwin.
