Cal sits with Muhammad’s daughter, Hana, almost three years
after his passing to talk about her dad. Hana has just written
a book called At Home With Muhammad Ali, and this conversation
looks at what life was like in the moments when the cameras weren’t
There are happy moments – seeing her dad stuffing his mouth with bubble gum as if he were a big kid. There are beautiful moments – the way Muhammad took homeless people into his own home because he believed unoccupied rooms were a sin. There are painful moments – coming across the love letters her dad wrote to try to salvage the marriage that had broken apart between him and Hana’s mom. And there are moments of honesty that can come only from looking at illness and death. Through it all we see the unique capacity of this man to connect with the world.
