        Supreme Court | In Their Own Words: Muhammad Ali

        Trace the history of Muhammad Ali’s draft evasion appeal with the Supreme Court in this excerpt from In Their Own Words: Muhammad Ali. The NAACP sues the New York State Athletic Commission, arguing that the ban on Ali is discriminatory. Ali loses a fight in New York to Joe Frazier, but he wins a victory in the Supreme Court, which overturns his conviction for draft evasion.
