Charley Pride: I’m Just Me 1x52, 1x78

Charley Pride stands as a symbol of hope and an example of the ways music can influence societal change. He arrived in Nashville in 1963, a year in which the Tennessee capital was the site of sit-ins and racial violence. Two years later, he was a recording artist on a major label, and in short time he became a superstar whose path would lead him to a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and a place in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Charley Pride’s story is a lesson in the ways that art and expression can triumph over prejudice and defeat injustice. Raised as less than a citizen in brutally segregated Mississippi, Charley Pride’s buttery voice and steely resolve helped him to a place as one of the world’s most impactful musical artists.
