WESTerday Trivia Answer: Muhammad Ali

M Ali at JSU

On Friday November 1st, 1968, Muhammad Ali surprised students at the coronation of Miss Jackson State College which was Miss Tommie Harris. He was immediately surrounded by students who were handing him their coronation programs to get his autograph. Although Muhammad Ali had come to Jackson for a speaking engagement, he spent most of his day visiting the campus of Jackson State University, formally known as Jackson State College.

Unfortunately, we do not have a winner for the day, but thank you for playing WESTerday Trivia. Everyone must have been listening to Muhammad Ali when he said, “Silence is golden when you can’t think of a good answer.”
