Rest in Power, Muhammad Ali!

At a loss. Freedom fighter both in the ring but more outside of it. You stood by your convictions, lost your title because you wouldn’t do white supremacy’s bidding and fight in Vietnam.

Today we bow our heads at the loss of a man who did so much for America. Tomorrow we will raise our heads again remembering that his bravery, his outspokenness, and his sacrifice for the sake of his community and country lives on in the best part of each of us.

Thank you for teaching us what it means to stand for something.

Thank you for teaching us what it means to engage in radical self-love.

Thank you for teaching the world what it means to be unapologetic and Black. Thank you for teaching us what it means to be a good Muslim. Muhammad Ali, you are and always will be the World’s Greatest.
