Johnny Cash, the musician known as "the Man in Black," has been gone now for ten years. His presence remains strong, however, through stories: the ones he sang about others, those he told about himself, and the many that people have -- and continue to seek -- about his music and life.

On Monday, February 24, at The Crawford Family Forum  KPCC editor Oscar Garza spoke with author of Johnny Cash: The Life and longtime music critic Robert Hilburn. A medley of music, visuals, and conversation amplified Cash, whose legacy now includes Hilburn's resonant biography.

Books were available for purchase before and after the program, courtesy of Skylight Books.
