Fetch Clay, Make Man is a thought-provoking exploration of the unlikely alliance between heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali (formerly known as Cassius Clay) and the contentious Hollywood figure, Stepin Fetchit (real name Lincoln Perry). Set against the backdrop of an eagerly-awaited boxing match, the narrative, penned by acclaimed actor and playwright Will Power and directed by Emmy Award® winner Debbie Allen, delves into the contrasts and commonalities between these two influential, yet vastly different cultural titans. On one hand, there’s the dynamic and bold Ali; on the other, the embittered, nearly-forgotten Fetchit. Together, they navigate their public images and mold their legacies amid the Civil Rights Movement turbulence in the mid-1960s. This true tale wields the potency and eloquence of Ali and the wit and irreverence of Fetchit’s well-known act. Fetch Clay, Make Man is a profound examination of strength, resilience, and pride, unearthing unity in contradiction.
