Based on the early life of Muhammad Ali in Jim Crow Louisville, the play tells the story of a young man who believes his potential is unlimited despite the segregation and racism he is surrounded by. With the help of his boxing coach, a white police officer, Cassius fulfills his dreams. But through the course of the play, he comes to understand there are more important things than personal success – he must also use his gifts to work for the good of his community.
