What's My Name, Fool? Sports and Resistance in the United States
by Dave Zirin
Muhammad Ali taunted his opponents as he danced around the ring, ordering them to answer the question, "What's my name, fool?" Ali's refusal to use his given name, Cassius Clay, was a watershed moment of the 1960s, a time when the worlds of sports and radical politics collided. But social conflict has always existed in the world of big-time pro sports-often over the objections of the owners and media conglomerates in charge.
