Rock and Roll Man is a timely story about visionary Alan Freed, a DJ in the 1950s and 60s, known as the "father of rock 'n' roll", who coined the phrase "rock 'n' roll". Freed was the first person to play the music of black artists on white radio stations, championing icons like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and more. Freed also hosted concerts that were, for the first time, integrated, both with the artist roster and audiences.

Rock and Roll Man: The Alan Freed Story is gritty and inspirational, centering on some of the most well-known artists of our time, Freed's passion for the music, and what it inspired.
