Boxing legend Mohamed Ali, who died in 2016, explained in an interview with the BBC in 1971 how he used to ask his mother about white representation. In his conversation with the journalist Michael Parkinson, Alí recounts that he was a curious child who noticed the large number of white objects and people in literature, the media and even household products, and wondered why people Blacks were not represented in the same way. In addition to being a boxer, Alí was a civil rights activist and poet who transcended the limits of sport, race and nationality.
