About this Episode

He was the everyman who spoke for Black men. He turned up his blue collar against the winds of change and remained a straight talker at every turn. He courted no glitz and evoked no glamor. His songwriting was threaded with the yarns of griots and represented the fabric of his people. His voice reverberated against the walls of love and longing, and often managed to break through. He turned complex emotion into simple truth. Bill Withers was the personification of Black music. Join The Music Snobs as we explore his genius and look at the future of his legend.
