Islamic Relief USA has given $100,000 to the center on its 13th anniversary, according to a news release. The Alexandria, Virginia-based organization says its an effort to honor the legacy of Louisville’s boxing legend.
The donation will be used to fund a temporary exhibit called, “America to Zanzibar: Muslim Cultures Near and Far.” It’s a hands-on exhibit showcasing Muslim art, architecture, and design from all over the world.
Lonnie Ali, Muhammad Ali’s widow, calls the organization’s donation a great way to honor her husband’s service to others.
“It enables the center to continue with programming, curriculum, initiatives, and exhibits that promote and support understanding of others whose only bond to each other is our shared humanity,” she said.
The temporary exhibit will be on display through December 30.
