Me We

Me We. Two words that stand for more than the poem itself.

During the commencement speech at Harvard in 1975, Muhammed Ali was giving a lecture to a senior class of 2000 Harvard student graduates. He was referring to how he hadn’t had the opportunity they had. How they should use the language, and the learnings they had to go out and do their best to make the world a better place. People who were there described the lecture as moving and funny at the same time.

By the end of the speech, there were great cheers of appreciation when someone shouted out: Give us a poem! while everybody quieted down... then Mohammed Ali, spoke the words: Me We. Two words that stand for more than the poem itself.
