But no group may have taken more pride in Ali’s accomplishments than American Muslims, who honored the legendary fighter Thursday at a heartfelt prayer service in the city where he grew up.

“Ali made being a Muslim cool. Ali made being a Muslim dignified. Ali made being a Muslim relevant,” said one speaker, scholar Sherman Jackson. “Ali put the question of whether a person can be a Muslim AND an American to rest.” To read more, click here: http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/09/us/muhammad-ali-funeral-services/
