Memoir to BB King
Hello again, Lucille.
BB King was born on September 16, 1925, on a plantation in Itta Bena, Mississippi. He would play music on the street for money at a younger age, and in 1947, he hitchhiked to Memphis Tennessee. He did this to become a great musician, because all great musicians of the time were gravitating to Memphis. He pioneered types of guitar playing, and even named his trademark Gibson guitars Lucille. He died on May 14, 2015.
BB King was an amazing Blues player, so great he got the nickname “King of the Blues.” Because of his songwriting skill, he landed a ten minute spot on a radio station on WDIA called “King’s Spot.” His number one hit was “Three O’clock Blues.” He toured a lot and even played a record 342 One Night Stands in 1956.
BB King is important in African American History because he was an inspiring musician. BB King proved how the racial boundaries are not true, black musicians can be just as good as white musicians. He proved so many people wrong, and inspired so many others, who realized that they could overcome the racial boundaries.
