Filmmaker Ken Burns returns this summer with a virtual sneak peek at his newest series, joined by co-directors David McMahon and Sarah Burns, who have previously collaborated with him on The Central Park Five (2013) and Jackie Robinson (2016). Editor Woody Richman '92 also participates in the conversation. This four-part, eight-hour film takes a deep dive into Ali's life, exploring one of the world's most iconic figures, including his extraordinary athleticism, his pacifism, his fearlessness in breaking stereotypes and his deep ties to the Nation of Islam. The evening includes extensive clips from the film and a behind-the scenes look at the making of Muhammad Ali. Join the conversation through the YouTube chat. Muhammad Ali premieres on PBS September 19–22. For more info, visit the official webpage.
