    A champion died who was the self-proclaimed King of the World.
    Muhammad Ali, aka "The Greatest of All Time".
    A man of principle. A man of faith. And...
    A man of color, A Black man.

    History has featured men of great stature before.

    Against all odds they've come and gone.

    Ruled from thrones, loved at home.

    Righteousness in men adorned

    Kings and queens, in between

    Holier, the stuff of dreams.

    One and the same

    As you or me

    Sanctified
