2014 Annual Report is Now Available
In Memorium - Muhammad Ali
January 17, 1942 - June 3, 2016
Our hearts are filled with sadness as we learn of the passing of Muhammad Ali. He is an exemplar of personal strength and athletic grace. His lifelong career made it possible for people of different races to sit together and enjoy the meaning of a sportsmanship that demonstrated relentless competitiveness, sometimes with an accompaniment of poetic assertiveness and provocative humor.
His emphatic rejection of the casual racial discrimination, which others seemed to take for granted as an inevitable characteristic of American society, took him high into the ranks of the nation's chief advocates of equal status for all persons. Likewise, his brave integrity outside the sports arena on behalf of religious freedom and opposition to senseless war should admit him into the orbit of civil rights heroes.
