In Fetch Clay, Make Man​, historical icons Muhammad Ali & Stepin' Fetchit explore friendship at the heart of race relations in 1960s America. The play is set on the eve of the Cassius Clay-Sonny Liston rematch, and based on the friendship between the actor Stepin Fetchit and Cassius Clay, soon to become Muhammad Ali. Fetch Clay, Make Man explores how each handled a life in the public eye as black men in their respective eras - Hollywood in the '20s, where a black actor’s career depended on playing caricatures, and the mid-'60s, after the assassination of Malcolm X.
