Ali & Cavett: The Tale of the Tapes

Chronicling the storied boxing career of Muhammad Ali through the prism of his numerous appearances on The Dick Cavett Show, Ali & Cavett is equally riveting for sports and pop culture fans alike. Whether they were celebrating Ali's numerous victories, or discussing his decision to join the Nation of Islam and refusal to serve in the military, the pair's easy chemistry (they were friends for over five decades) was a cultural milestone in terms of on-screen representation, and they spoke candidly about issues that still challenge America to this very day.
