Kentucky State University mourns the loss of the People’s Champ and Louisville native son Muhammad Ali. Mr. Ali inspired our students with his charisma and charm when he visited the University during the ‘60s and ‘70s. In 2003, KSU awarded the boxing legend an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters during the graduation ceremonies. His strength and passion will be dearly missed.

Thank you, Muhammad Ali. You truly were The Greatest of All Time.
