Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards
Craig Melvin, national correspondent on NBC News’ TODAY and anchor on MSNBC, will host the Fourth Annual Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards on Saturday, September 17th in Louisville, Ky at the Marriott Louisville Downtown. Six young humanitarians from around the world, age 30 years or younger, will be honored at an evening which celebrates greatness and shines a light on their innovative humanitarian work. Each of these young adults will receive an award that mirrors one of Muhammad Ali’s six core principles – confidence, conviction, dedication, giving, respect, and spirituality – which aligns with their respective fields of work.
This year’s awards will also serve as a tribute to the late, great Muhammad Ali. Ali, who passed away on June 3, 2016, was the co-founder of the Muhammad Ali Center, and attended each of the previous year’s Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards.
