"MUHAMMAD ALI: MADE IN MIAMI explores the critical role that Miami played in the evolution of one of the most significant cultural figures of our time: Muhammad Ali (ne Cassius Clay). The film chronicles Cassius Clay’s arrival in Miami in the fall of 1960 (fresh from earning a gold medal in the Rome Olympics), his life in Overtown — a neighborhood that was considered 'Harlem South' and a vibrant center of black entertainment and commerce — and his affiliation with the famed Fifth Street Gym in Miami Beach. Over the course of the next few years — coinciding with the height of the national civil rights movement — Clay evolved both professionally and politically, piling up victories in the ring and adopting the black separatist teachings of the Nation of Islam. As MUHAMMAD ALI: MADE IN MIAMI makes clear, it was in this period that Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali."
