Artist Ike White was a musical prodigy, but his talents seemed to be both a blessing and a curse. He spent time in prison in the 1970’s, recorded a successful album there, that got the thumbs up from musicians like Stevie Wonder, and was on the road to stardom, until he disappeared.

Fordham Conversations Host Robin Shannon talks with Vivienne Perry. She is a Fordham alum and producer of the documentary, The Changin Times of Ike White, where she helps to unearth the mystery of the real Ike White.
