Music, music history, and generational waves of white supremacy

I grew up listening to Elvis and mostly white artists. And over the years I’ve learned a little about the way white supremacy made Elvis a star while Black performers who created the genre of Rock and Roll were never fully recognized by the dominant white culture.1 2 Recently I learned that Chuck Berry was influenced by Sister Rosetta Tharpe. I’m ashamed to say I didn’t recognize her name.
