From his Louisville roots, through his years in exile, to receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, “The Trials of Muhammad Ali” traces the boxing legend’s path from poet to pariah to global ambassador for peace. What emerges is the hidden history of Muhammad Ali, revealing his journey toward a full spiritual embrace of Islam and his humanitarian work around the world. Featuring never before seen interviews and archival footage, the challenges Ali faced go far beyond the boxing ring and ultimately encompass issues of power, race, faith, and identity that confront us all.

Critics Consensus: Director Bill Siegel doesn't explore any new boundaries of the documentary with The Trials of Muhammad Ali, but his subject is so inherently fascinating that the movie proves gripping in spite of its familiar beats.
