We really lost a treasure when Maurice White passed. The book gives insight on his life and how his experiences shaped the elements Earth Wind & Fire. As a child he experienced racism and colorism. His biological mom wasn't able to care for him so she left him with a woman who took care of him for several years. I admire that as a teenager and young man he understood the importance of taking care of his family and devoted himself to providing black people especially black men with a sense of manhood with dignity through song. He valued his privacy so divulging that he was suffering from Parkinsons Disease was difficult. The author of Herb Powell did an exceptional job in creating Maurice's life story for all to enjoy. The book is truly his "last album" and a touching end to a beautiful soul and powerful legacy. If you are an Earth Wind & Fire fan this book is a must have. THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING 😍
