The powerful story of Muhammad Ali and his game-changing role in the civil rights movement, and the evolving imagery of black men in America. Author David Remnick contrasts the three major heavyweight champions of the 1960s (Sonny Liston, Floyd Patterson, and Ali) as competing models of black identity: the "Bad Negro", (Liston) the "Good Negro", (Patterson) and Ali, who refused to follow either prescribed role.
