Main Event: The Ali/Foreman Extravaganza through the Lens of Howard L. Bingham

January 19, 2002 – March 27, 2002

Museum: Arts and Industries Building

Sponsor: Anacostia Community Museum

Location: East Hall

Rare glimpses into the world of boxing are presented through 123 photographs by Howard L. Bingham of the "Rumble in the Jungle" -- the Ali/Foreman boxing match of October 30, 1974, in Kinshasa, Zaire. The images address the politics of sport, celebrity journalism, the rigors of training, the devotion of fans, and the relatively quiet interludes between public activities, rather than the events in the ring.

Organized and produced by the UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History in Los Angeles and sponsored by the Anacostia Museum.
