Zora Folley was a hometown hero in Chandler, an elite athlete in boxing circles, and a heavyweight contender followed by fans around the country. His name was prominent in glowing media accounts, and he earned the esteem of competitors, but Folley never boasted about his achievements. Who was this quiet and private man away from the ring? Join us as four of his children share stories of the Zora Folley they loved and admired: not the celebrity or boxer, but the man and father.
After the program, view the exhibition “Bigger Than Boxing: Zora Folley and the 1967 Heavyweight Title,” open through February 13, 2022.
