Barnum & Bailey Circus Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson to Visit Ali Center

Circus Ringmaster to inspire the next generation of leaders in collaboration with the Muhammad Ali Center

In the spirit of “The Greatest” Muhammad Ali and the “Legends” theme for this year’s Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson will inspire youth to create a legendary life. In collaboration with members of the Center’s Muhammad Ali Center Council of Students (MACCS) and other young people, invited guests will hear what it takes to follow your dreams and create a memorable destiny. Iverson, a trained opera singer and former member of the famed Harlem Boys Choir, will share his story and life views as a means to inspire the next generation of leaders. Thousands of patrons will see The Greatest Show on Earth® during its run at the KFC Yum! Center, May 14-17, but only a select few will get to hear this message of dedication and hope.

When: Wednesday, May 13, 2015  (5-6 pm)
