Special Broadcast. Chicago singer Sam Cooke took the music he grew-up with in the church and brought it to the rest of the world in the form of unforgettable pop tunes that topped the charts in the late 1950s and early 60s. Working with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Case Western Reserve University, ideastream's David C. Barnett produced this hour-long documentary that examines Cooke's life as a singer and social activist. More information here.
