Director Lisa Cortés enriches musical history with a treasure trove of seldom-seen archive footage of Richard Wayne Penniman, aka Little Richard. Among the treasures are images of his Black and queer predecessors and contemporaries, such as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the mother of rock ‘n’ roll who gave 14-year-old Penniman his first big break.
