Boxraum im Fuchsbau

Graffiti-Workshop im Jugendfreizeitheim Fuchsbau, Berlin-Reinickendorf

Muhammad Ali ist nicht nur eine Boxikone, sondern er vertrat auch eine politische und ethische Haltung, die heute immer noch Orientierung gibt :

“Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. […] I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.”
