They say pressure creates diamonds. Well, B.B. King’s journey began after being born onto a plantation in absolute meager conditions that could afford only his existence.
From that disadvantaged moment he would strive forward only to face off with racial injustice, systemic inequality and the sheer pressure of survival.
With music as his only true ally, he amazingly transformed into one of the most celebrated musical and creative geniuses the world has ever known.
