In November 1975, Studs Terkel used his portable tape recorder to capture an interview with one of the best-known and most indelible figures of the 20th century: boxing great and activist Muhammad Ali. Ali was born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. in Louisville, Kentucky on January 17, 1942 and succumbed to Parkinson’s in 2016.
