Stuart Cosgrove at Berwick Literary Festival
Stuart Cosgrove – Cassius X: A Legend in the Making
Stuart was Media Editor of NME, an executive at Channel 4, and he presents BBC Scotland’s radio show ‘Off the Ball’. Following his award-winning soul trilogy, his new research shines a light on how black music lit up the sixties against a backdrop of social and political turmoil and how Cassius Clay, a remarkable witness to the first days of soul music, made his extraordinary transformation into Muhammad Ali.
Stuart will be interviewed by Gerry Foley.
