FullSizeRender (23)

Muhammad Ali’s life impacted so many young, old, black and white. This video presented by “Because Of Them We Can” shows young black boys salute Muhammad Ali as they recite some of his powerful words and statements.

“I am America. I am the part you won’t recognize. But get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me.”

Because Of Them We Can is a campaign headed by Eunique Jones and birthed out of her “desire to share our history and promising future through images that would refute stereotypes and build the esteem of our children.”

The campaign was originally meant to last just 28 days (for Black History Month in February), but Jones understood and saw how important it was to continue empowering our youth, so has continued the campaign.
