Muhammad Ali and Stevie Wonder at The Apollo, 1963

Muhammad Ali and Stevie Wonder backstage at the Apollo Theatre, in 1963. We think the image was taken before a performance by “Little” Stevie Wonder as he was known at the time (read Robin V., think that’s Ronnie Spector looking at the camera). Ali had just started boxing in 1960, and in 1963 Ali beats Sonnie Listen and the 12 year old Stevie Wonder was performing his hit Finger Tips.
