ALI AT ARCHER
As people from the four corners of the globe share their Muhammad Ali memories, we proudly share ours. Before Ali’s historic comeback in 1970, Morehouse Man LeRoy Johnson ’49 called on the ‘House to host The Greatest for an exhibition fight to ensure that the big show would go on. The Archer Hall event was the precursor to his return.
