ALI: The Mission

ESPN 30 for 30:

The next film in ESPN Films’ 30 for 30 Shorts series premieres today on Grantland.com. Ali: The Mission, narrated by musician John Legend, delves into perhaps one of the most important, but least known, feats of Muhammad Ali’s remarkable life. In 1990, the boxing legend traveled to Iraq to press a plea for peace and negotiate with Saddam Hussein for the release of U.S. civilians taken hostage after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait. You can watch the entire Muhammad ALI 30 for 30 documentary piece right here, as well as read more about the story from those involved.
