Question: As the world mourns the death of Muhammad Ali, we ask: When did Ali give an address in Graham Chapel?
Answer: C) Muhammad Ali spoke at Washington University Dec. 5, 1975, sponsored by the Black Studies program, the Association of Black Students and Special Educational Services. His visit was part of a citywide Muhammad Ali Day, during which he visited various St. Louis institutions. Jack Kirkland, now associate professor at the Brown School, accompanied Ali to the city jail. Ali told the prisoners: “Anyone here who can beat me, the warden will let out of jail,” to roars of laughter, Kirkland recalled. There were no takers.
