Shelley, hostess of the Beyond the Page Cafe, reads "Float Like a Butterfly" to the Cafe kids. This brief biography of Muhammad Ali emphasizes his drive to succeed and strong self-esteem. The Cafe kids then have an online interview with the book's author Ntozake Shange and illustrator Edel Rodriguez. The session ends with a "visit" to a gym that caters to young people who share Ali's spirit.
