Clay was born on January 17, 1942 in Louisville, Ky. Growing up, Clay understood his place in the framework of the country – he was a black child of the middle class. But Toni Morrison, who worked on Ali's autobiography as a young editor, noted that was not the best situation in which to be raised. Because not only was he middle class, "but black middle class, black southern middle class, which is not white middle class at all."
