Our Stories ONLINE: Fight Night in Chandler-- March 22, 1967 Online

Our Stories is now online! Zora Folley, professional boxer from Chandler, got his shot at the heavyweight title when he fought Muhammad Ali on March 22, 1967, in New York’s Madison Square Garden. With the television broadcast blacked out, and without a radio broadcast, it looked like Chandler residents would miss out on their hometown hero’s biggest moment. Our presenter from the Chandler Museum tells the story of how Chandlerites were able to overcome these obstacles and find a unique way to experience the biggest fight night in Chandler history.

Our Stories will be presented online until in-person program return to the Chandler Library and Chandler Museum. Produced as a collaboration between the Library and the Museum, this series presents diverse speakers who share unique Arizona and local history topics to a general audience throughout the year.
