SSNPod #241 | The Black Women Rock and Roll Pioneers Cinematic Universe (feat. Alasha & @tREBLEFREE) | #saysomethingreal

For many, rock & roll music is associated with white men and teenagers. Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry are often considered its founding fathers. However, rock music owes much of its existence to a number of Black women who birthed the musical genre via their gospel and rhythm & blues roots. In this special episode, the SSN crew and special guests Alasha and tREBLEFREE discuss the mothers of Rock & Roll: Sister Rosetta Tharpe, LaVern Baker, and Ruth Brown, as well as artists such as Betty Davis and Joi Gilliam who followed in their footsteps. Join us in celebrating the true legacy of rock and roll during Black History Month.
