Trials of Muhammad Ali: Confronted and Redeemed

In this opening excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Trials of Muhammad Ali, the famed boxer appears via satellite on Eamonn Andrews U.K. talk show in 1968, where he's confronted by David Susskind, a U.S. TV host, who calls Ali "a disgrace to his country and a convicted felon." This is contrasted with a more recent moment of redemption: Ali receiving the Medal of Freedom in 2005.
