Description: There is something unique in the American culture about the phenomenon of Elvis Presley. Years after his death, the sales of his recordings and memorabilia far exceed that of any other popular recording artist, or movie star; much more than the Beatles or the Rolling Stones. Any piece of new information about him is eagerly consumed by his fans. Hence, there is something special about the dynamic phenomenon of Elvis Presley which transcends the experience of other popular recording artists and movie stars. What that is, is that Elvis Presley conditioned the minds of perceptionally appearing white, Southern, lowland people, especially young, white Southern people, to peacefully accept integration. Thus, unwittingly, Elvis Presley psychologically prepared white Southerners for the transformation of the South, which is one-quarter of the United States of America. This is the story of that transformation.
