I just completed an excellent interview w/ Khalilah Camacho-Ali, former wife of Muhammad Ali, who played a key role in making sure the documentary, The Trials of Muhammad Ali, turned out the way it did.
She said when she was approached to be a part of it in the very beginning, she told the director, Bill Siegel, that Minister Louis Farrakhan's valuable perspective MUST be included if the truth about the champion fighter was to be told.

If you've watched the documentary, you know she has a lot of personality, and believe me, she was the same way in person. Very colorful, expressive, and direct.
A delight to interview! You'll love it!
Thanks to Edward Steave & Warren Muhammad for their expert camera work and in advance for what I'm sure will be flawless editing resulting in a valuable finished product.
Even if you are not one who typically likes documentaries, I think you will enjoy this one.
