"We think this is the perfect film to partner with for our mission," said chapter lead Alpha Dixon"Ali inspired black young men across America to find the courage to stand for what they believed, regardless of the cost. We want to help build upon his legacy with this fundraiser as well as well as honor him as part of our Black History Month celebration". The Alphas have bought 150 tickets to the second night of the screening in an effort to connect their brotherhood with the Ali's Comeback story.
