American country singer and songwriter Johnny Cash (1932 - 2003) walks inside the gates of Folsom Prison, preparing to perform his fourth concert for inmates there, California, 1964.

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, join us at The Crawford Family Forum as KPCC editor Oscar Garza talks with author of Johnny Cash: The Life and longtime music critic Robert Hilburn. A medley of music, visuals, and conversation will amplify Cash, whose legacy now includes Hilburn's resonant biography.

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