Muhammad Ali Handwritten Prompt Card Regarding Race Relations, PSA/DNA Encapsulated & Certified

A PSA/DNA encapsulated prompt card entirely inscribed in the hand of Muhammad Ali (1942-2016), celebrated championship boxer, civil rights activist, artist, and philanthropist. The 8" x 5" blue-ruled index card is inscribed with 31 words in black felt tip marker. PSA/DNA certified as authentic. The slightest of upturned corners at upper right, mentioned just for accuracy. Else near fine. The slab measures 10" x 6.5" overall.

In the fourteenth prompt card of an unknown speech, Muhammad Ali wrote in full:

"The lack of knowledge of self {14} /

is one of our main HANDICAPS. /

We still call ourselves b[y] /

the slave masters['] names. /

They have called us by /

their names and nicknames."

While Ali is best remembered for his championship boxing career, he was also a man of many causes. Ali's conversion to Islam in the late 1950s informed his refusal to serve in the U.S. military following the mandatory Vietnam War draft. An increasingly visible symbol of pacifism as well as the Civil Rights and Black Power movement, Ali became a popular choice for college and university speaking engagements as well as rallies. This prompt card, entirely written in Ali's clear and fluid handwriting, was almost certainly used by him at one such event.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
