Recorded Program-- Our Stories: Fight Night in Chandler-- March 22, 1967 Online
Recorded presentation of October's "Our Stories: Fight Night in Chandler-- March 22, 1967" is available on Chandler Public Library's YouTube channel until November 30, 2020! Chandler Museum presents the story of Zora Folley, a professional boxer from Chandler, who 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- until the Chandler mayor and other savvy residents came through with a unique solution!
Total running time: 39 minutes.
Our Stories will be presented online until in-person program return to the Chandler Library and Chandler Museum. Some prestentations will be recorded and available afterward on YouTube for a limited time. 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.
