Ain’t Gonna Shuffle No More

“A call to pride and a renewed push for unity galvanize black America.”

This episode of Eyes on the Prize covers the evolution of Cassius Clay into Muhammad Ali as well as the development of Afrocentric consciousness among students at Howard University in Washington, D.C. (This period in the university’s history is a key reason that Howard represents “the Mecca” for Ta-Nehisi Coates.)
