Muhammad Ali's Funeral: Live From Louisville

Jun 16, 2016, 04:30 PM

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 Muhammad 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.Column: ‘Sleep Easy, My Brother’ http://thenation.com/article/sleep-easy-my-brotherColumn: ‘The Orlando Killings and the Message of Muhammad Ali’s Funeral’ http://thenation.com/article/the-orlando-killings-and-the-message-of-muhammad-alis-funeralThe Ali Center: http://alicenter.orgAli’s entire interfaith memorial: https://youtu.be/NBX59J-ltuAAli’s Muslim Janazah memorial: https://youtu.be/_xMTGnHoHS8Ali’s entire memorial procession: https://youtu.be/G5ZDZMLfgqYSpecial thanks: The Ali Center, The Nation, Panoply, Andy Bowers, Democracy Now, Amy Goodman, Dalia Mogahed and her family, Howard Bryant, the staff of Broadway Digital, WBAI, Mike Pesca, Mary Wilson, the MSNBC crew in Louisville, Craig Melvin, Brian Williams, Dr. Harry Edwards, Jim Embry, Dedrick Rashad Hough, and Julius Denson II.Music: (Louisville’s own) Jerry Tolson — March Of The Contradi http://jerrytolson.com | Yusef Lateef - Love Theme From Spartacus http://yuseflateef.com—http://edgeofsportspodcast.com | http://twitter.com/edgeofsports | http://fb.com/edgeofsportspod | email us: edgeofsports@slate.com
