Interview with Steven Dunkley

OK, Steven, can you tell me again about what was different about that day when Ali was going to inducted?


What was different about that day that Ali was going to be inducted in the Houston Center, ah, was that we were asked to be there, ah, two hours early. We had to be in the building by 6 o'clock that morning. That was mainly for our protection. Also because of the, ah, factions that were expected to materialis- materialize outside, which they did. Then also, ah, we had to set up a press room, ah, to give releases on exactly what Muhammad Ali, where he was in the induction process. And also we had a direct line open to the Pentagon where we could give them the, ah, steps that he was going through toward induction.
