Schooled by Youtube: Remembering Pops Staples

0 Posted by - June 29, 2018 - Schooled By Youtube

At Black Then, we often see videos that make us stop and think. They frequently reveal information that is not broadcasted to the masses and are created by great talents that are not shown in mainstream media.

In this video we found, we learn more about Roebuck “Pops” Staples (December 28, 1914 – December 19, 2000) was an American Gospel and R&B musician. A “pivotal figure in gospel in the 1960s and 1970s,”[1] he was an accomplished songwriter, guitarist and singer. He was the patriarch and member of singing group The Staple Singers, which included his son Pervis and daughters Mavis, Yvonne, and Cleotha.
