Sam Cooke: Legend 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This should be shown in High School social studies classes. Not only one of the greatest singers and songwriters of the 20th century, but also an unrecognized civil rights hero. A brilliant character gets a very good biography in motion picture here. Worth it for the long lost performance film, a home run thanks to all the interviews. Aretha Franklin loved and admired him, and she'll tell you why. That's a more glowing endorsement than I could ever muster.
