He realized the timeliness of her words – her insights on how Mohammed Ali’s legacy connects to humanity, the courageous positions he took on social issues, and even her take on the important role women leaders of color play in society – and there’s never been a better time to hear her voice.
Lonnie Ali is an incredible leader who has devoted her life to making the world a better place. In 1992, Lonnie incorporated and served as Vice President and treasurer of Greatest of All Time, Inc. or (G.O.A.T). Today she is a Lifetime Director and Vice Chair of the Muhammad Ali Center, a non-profit museum and cultural center that she and her husband opened in 2005.
Lonnie Ali has been active in various charitable causes including advocating for children’s rights and Parkinson’s disease research. From 2010 to 2013, Lonnie served on the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues. She was the 2010 recipient of AARP’s Inspire Award, was named in 2012 as one of Arizona’s 48 Most Intriguing Women, and inducted into The National Consortium for Academics and Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.
