Johnny Cash: The Man In Black

Airs Friday, August 31 at 9:00 p.m. Johnny Cash became the stuff of legend over his long and storied career. Born in Arkansas and reared in fields of cotton, he was also raised on Gospel music and radio. The struggles of the depression that his and other families endured would ring through much of his music. He would become a champion for many who didn't have one. As his career progressed and would use his fame and status to bring changes and awareness of the plight of many, including prisoners, Native Americans, as well as the poor and downtrodden. Join us for this hour long look at Johnny Cash's politics and influence on American Culture. "Till things are brighter, I'm the Man in Black" sang Johnny Cash. He was an American with open eyes, aware of the state of the world, and he cared deeply. Cash shared his opinions on politics without hesitation or compromise, and people listened. His influence helped open the way for artists to express their feelings and views without fear. Rodney Crowell hosts this hour long tribute to The Man In Black.
