Little Richard I Am Everything Is Showing Now

BXXBCN LITTLE RICHARD at Wrigley Fields, Los Angeles, 2 September 1956

Little Richard: I Am Everything debuts in theaters and online streaming today. Lisa Cortés documentary about the late rock and roll pioneer is having a limited run but can be seen online everywhere. Richard’s reign in the ’50s and ’60s put him in a place to be one of the Black artists to break the color line by bringing Black and white audiences together. His influence is often overlooked and he never really fully recognized during his lifetime. The documentary follows his path from childhood to stardom and John Waters, Nona Hendryx and Billy Porter are a few of the artists to chime in on Richard’s impact. Check out the trailer below and go to the official website to access viewing options. Stay tuned for a review of the documentary.
