Join host Mamie Hassell with special guests author Robert Gordon and Museum curator Candice Candeto, for a discussion of Respect Yourself: Stax Records and the Soul Explosion. Set in the world of 1960s and '70s soul music, Respect Yourself is a story of epic heroes in a shady industry. It's about music and musicians: Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett, the Staple Singers, and Booker T. & the M.G.'s, Stax’s interracial house band. It's about a small independent company's struggle to survive in a business world of burgeoning conglomerates.
