Muhammad Ali Hajj, 1942 - 2016

An American icon has passed away. There are many memorable photos and videos of this proud, great man. Here is one of my favorites:

The man understood more about human biodiversity than most Ph.D.'s.

Muhammad, born Cassius Clay, joined the Nation of Islam in 1964. He made his pilgrimage to Mecca in 1972, earning the honorific Hajj. He converted to Sunni Islam in 1975. In 2005, he adopted Sufism.

May God grant peace and rest to the soul of the American, Muhammad Ali Hajj.
