Muhammad Ali had a way with words even in his days as Cassius Clay. So it makes perfect sense that the BlackPoet Ventures Float Like a Butterfly: A Spoken Word Tribute to Muhammad Ali acts as a poetic tribute to the king of the ring.
Butterfly traces Alis life from fiery young fighter to international phenomenon while chronicling his work as an activist. Adapted to the stage by Leah Marché and directed by Rod Ambrose, the cast is made up of poets, actors, and dancers in addition to live musicians.
