Muhammad Ali’s Funeral: Live From Louisville


Today we bring you the emotions, sounds, and voices of Muhammad Ali’s funeral in Louisville. This was a day that will go down in history as the last act of resistance by the 20th century’s most iconic fighter. People came to pay respects from near and far, both young and old, in every shade of color, media professionals and everyday folks alike…all bound together by a love for our hero: Ali. This show is dedicated to our LBGT - and specifically Latino LGBT - brothers and sisters who were killed in Orlando the very day after Ali’s funeral. We address this horrific juxtaposition with a statement against anti-LGBT and anti-Muslim bigotry.
