The Center on Conscience & War, The GI Rights Hotline, and the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America present a special screening of the documentary film "The Trials of Muhammad Ali" at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at Myers Park Baptist Church.


The film screening is part of a weekend-long GI Rights Conference running from Thursday, May 15 – Sunday, May 18 at Myers Park Baptist Church.


The Trials of Muhammad Ali focuses on the life of Muhammad Ali from his childhood, to winning his Olympic gold medal in Rome, to his conversion to Islam, and finally, to his objection of the war in Vietnam. His objection to the war and refusal to serve in the Army left Ali banned from boxing and faced with a five-year prison sentence. Touching on the issues of race, faith, conscience, and identity, the story of Muhammad Ali is moving and powerful, and will resonate with audiences today.


A question and answer session will follow the film.
