CASSIUS CLAY aka "MUHAMMAD ALI" RETURNS TO SMOKETOWN 

WHERE HE FIRST LEARNED TO BOX

Smoketown children gather around Muhammad Ali when he‚Äč returned to Louisville, Kentucky in the Fall of 1963.  This photo was taken outside the Presbyterian Community Center on South Hancock Street, where Muhammad Ali FIRST learned to box under the training of Fred R. Stoner.  Many of the children in this photo are "Original" Smoketown members and almost all of us are still alive today.  Guess What?  

We Have All Grown Up Now!
