"A Bond That Altered Both Lives and Affected Those of Millions of Others"

"Looking back more than 40 years after the death of Malcolm X, Ali shared his regrets: 'I wish I'd been able to tell Malcolm I was sorry, that he was right about so many things. Malcolm X was a great thinker and an even greater friend.... If I could go back and do it over again, I would never have turned my back on him.' Ali's understanding of the enormity of the loss of Malcolm X is one that he doesn't bear alone."
