American Masters “Little Richard: The King and Queen of Rock and Roll”

Fri. Feb 2 at 8 p.m.

In honor of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, American Masters presents “Little Richard: The King and Queen of Rock and Roll.” A fearless pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll who broke the color barrier in the 1950s with hits like “Tutti Frutti” and “Long Tall Sally,” Little Richard defined a genre and inspired generations by defying societal expectations. Charting the meteoric rise of the artist who counted The Beatles and the Rolling Stones as his opening acts, “American Masters ‘Little Richard: King and Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll'” provides an intimate exploration of the renowned, electrifying and multifaceted individual.
