Author Mark Ribowsky talks about the legacy of Little Richard, from the surprising story of his first hit single, "Tutti Frutti," to the many comebacks he had later in his career. Ribowsky also discusses the influential singer's struggles and frustrations with navigating a racist music industry, which he captures in his newly released biography, The Big Life of Little Richard.

"I call it rock & roll's original sin. The people who actually made rock & roll, [and were] pivotal to the growth of this whole music industry, never were given a fair share of the financial results," Ribowsky says.
