Following the tragic event, the iconic Muhammad Ali personally reached out to the Kopechne family to offer not only his condolences, but also his personal thoughts regarding the story. Offered is Ali’s handwritten letter to the Kopechne family that details his distaste with the Kennedy’s and the totality of the events that occurred. Ali signed the bottom of the letter as both Muhammad Ali and Cassius Clay. An incredibly rare insight into the thoughts of one of the greatest athletes regarding a controversial event.
