This story is about Muhammad Ali, an American legend that was discriminated because of his race and his religion. Ali was very influential to the civil rights movement.
After winning a gold medal for his country, Ali threw his medal into a river because he was refused service at a restaurant.
Ali refused entering the draft because he didn't want to fight for a country that didn't give him freedom.
After refusing to enter the draft, Ali was sentenced to jail for 5 years. He also had his boxing license taken away. The US government had no respect for Ali just because of his skin tone.
Ali's charges were dropped when the New York Supreme Court deemed that he didn't have to enter the draft because of his religion. This was the first time the government showed justice to him.
Ali wasn't only discriminated against because of his race; he was also discriminated because of his religion. People called Muslims terrorists and Ali again stood up for himself and other people.
