  Surrounded by fans and journalists, Muhammad Ali (then known by his birth name, Cassius Clay) arrives at the Bitter End, 147 Bleecker Street, where he and others were to participate in a poetry reading, March 12, 1963.

  Ali also made an appearance once at PS 41, our alma mater. In 1974, Ali, then heavyweight champion of the world, visited the school to film a segment of Candid Camera.
