Synopsis:

Belatedly acknowledged as the Godmother of Rock ‘n Roll, Sister Rosetta Tharpe shattered every barrier that she faced as she made her mark on the music world. Marie and Rosetta chronicles her journey with young gospel singer Marie Knight, whom she recruited away from Mahalia Jackson. Despite being forced by Jim Crow laws to lodge and rehearse in funeral homes and other unpleasant accommodations while on the road, Marie and Rosetta broke new ground with their music and their relationship.

*This show contains mild adult language and content*
