“Muhammad Ali gave us incredible skill as a fighter, an incomparable gift for words, and a peerless legacy as a sports and cultural icon.
He also modeled the extraordinary power of self-determination — inspiring millions to treasure their humanity, claim their dignity, and give all they have to the global causes of peace, justice, and equality.
It was my great privilege to honor him when I was City Council president. And his daughter, Maryum, shared his values with us during her years in the Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction & Youth Development.
Los Angeles mourns today with the entire Ali family. ‘The Greatest’ is no longer with us in body, but his spirit lives in the hearts of all who were touched by his grace and strength.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
