Accessing the Archives Program 
June 5, 2019 | 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

“Accessing the Archives” is a tour of the Muhammad Ali Center permanent exhibits, with special attention paid to the items on display, like the robe Ali was gifted from Elvis Presley. It will include a special extension, allowing guests an insider look at items from the archives. The Collections Department staff, Casey Harden and Bess McHone, will present four special collections items to guests. The items will reflect Ali as an artist, boxer, and friend, in order to give the audience a well-rounded view of Muhammad Ali.  After the presentation, there will be time for a question and answer segment.

Please bring in an item from the list below for the donation drive hosted by the Muhammad Ali Center in conjunction with our temporary exhibit, Shining a Light: (The) Many Faces of Homeless Women:
