Little Richard

Little Richard (Richard Penniman), born in 1932 in Georgia in the USA, was probably the founder of rock and roll.

In 1951 Richard became friends with the openly gay singer Esquerita.

In 1958, Little Richard became deeply troubled by the conflict between his strict religious upbringing and his homosexuality.

In 1958, Little Richard gave up his rock and roll life to become a fundamentalist 'Christian'.

He enrolled in Oakwood Bible College in Huntsville, Alabama.
