    A Story Everyone Should Know By Heart

    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.
