Every hero starts somewhere. For 12-year-old Cassius Clay Jr., who would become the sports legend known to the world as Muhammad Ali, it was a boxing gym in Louisville, Kentucky. This is the swift and vibrant origin story of how a determined young boy growing up in the Jim Crow South took on all challengers in his path to becoming...The Greatest. An unlikely hero is a classic story, but And in This Corner: Cassius Clay goes an extra, exhilarating round by exploring how remarkable communities help to create them.

The creative team for And in This Corner: Cassius Clay includes Imani Champion (Production Coordinator), Twi McCallum (Sound Designer/Sound Editing and Mixing), and Christopher O'Neal (Illustrator).

And in This Corner: Cassius Clay runs approximately 11-17 minutes per episode or 55 minutes in full. This audio play is recommended for grades 4 and up.
