However, it’s a book that Roberts released in 2016 that is garnering some attention right now. Roberts book, “Blood Brothers: The Fatal Friendship Between Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X” is now being adopted for television.
The book focuses on the intense relationship between Ali and Malcolm X, two significant figures during the Civil Rights movement and their tragic falling out. Now, with the book being made into a television production, Roberts is hopeful it will reach a larger audience.
