PBS TELEVISION CELEBRATES NORTH AMERICA'S BLACK HISTORY MONTH WITH A REPEAT SHOWING OF A NOT-TO-BE-MISSED DOCUMENTARY ABOUT SISTER ROSETTA THARPE - Friday, February 12th @ 11:00 pm .

Sister Rosetta Tharpe: The Godmother of Rock & Roll
Southern-born, Chicago-raised and New York-made
Rosetta TharpePBS writes:
Despite not being a household name today, Sister Rosetta Tharpe is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Her flamboyance, skill, and showmanship on the newly electrified guitar played a vital role in the conception of Rock & Roll as a genre of music. Featuring archival performances and using new interviews with fellow musicians, producers, friends, and colleagues, this film tells the story of a talented and determined woman that introduces spiritual passion of her gospel music background into Rock & Roll. Learn more about Sister Rosetta Tharpe, her life story, and lasting artistic legacy.

For fans of PBS TV on the West Coast of Canada & America's Pacific North West the KCTS 9 guide tells us that "Sister Rosetta Tharpe: The Godmother of Rock & Roll" is showing at 11:00 pm PST on Friday, February 12th on "American Masters".  Let's hope they don't show a David Bowie doc instead.
