Description:

Sam Cooke was the biggest star in gospel music before he ever crossed over into pop. His first single under his own name, "You Send Me," went to #1 on the charts and sold two million copies. At a time when record companies treated black artists like hired help, Sam Cooke demanded respect. And he connected, with songs like "Wonderful World," "Chain Gang," "Another Saturday Night" – his own seemingly effortless compositions – as well as with "A Change Is Gonna Come," his acknowledged masterpiece, an anthem for the civil rights movement almost from the moment it was released.

This resoundingly praised book summons up an entire era with almost unbearable poignancy and drama. It is an epic account of American life during a turbulent but hopeful age as well as a deeply moving portrait of a complex, inspired artist and human being.
