Enroll in Rel 3900/4900 Elvis. Memphis Messiah!
During the 1950's females had few rights and basic equalities did not exist. Elvis appealed to females because they were tired of demanding males that kept them from progressing. His music opened the doors to females to change their lives. He was not the John Wayne type. He was emotional, caring, and reached out to women and wanted to please them. He also allowed for males to become more feminine. No wonder the critics hated him. He offered females freedom. He was everything they were not!
Study his life, his music, the Memphis Mafia, origins of his music, influence on race relations and his films. Movies, books, Tribute Tunes and Tribute Artists remember his life and songs while many worship at home-made Elvis shrines and visit Graceland on two special holidays each year.
