LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Muhammad Ali is recognizing former President Jimmy Carter, Grammy winners and young adults for their roles in fighting for humanitarian causes.
The former boxing champion returned to his hometown of Louisville to join in presenting the inaugural Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards on Thursday night.
The 89-year-old Carter received a lifetime achievement award. His son Chip accepted the award on his father's behalf.
Singers Christina Aguilera and Michael Bolton were other award winners.
Ali's wife, Lonnie, says the awards are a culmination of her husband's efforts to promote social causes.
Six young adults and teenagers from around the world were being recognized for exemplifying core principles espoused by Ali. Winners include a Ugandan who formed an anti-poverty organization and an American teenager who started a foundation to provide shoes to homeless children.
