 This week, you will be listening to music from the early Rock and Roll genre.

This week, Rock and Roll was a term first coined by DJ Alan Freed in

the 1950s. Rock music was often synonymous with R&B in the early years. However,

Rock and Roll, with the exception of Little Richard and Chuck Berry, began with white

artists “covering” hits that would have at one time be considered R&B.

In addition to your etextbook, you should expect to complete some research online to

respond to these questions. Be sure to use vetted resources—if you aren’t sure what a

reliable source is, remember, you can use the CRAP test to determine if your source is

reliable!
