The Johnny Adams Story is about a man, his music and a lifelong struggle to become free. Free from a corrupt music industry that often times denied legal counsel, worked hard to keep many black entertainers under their tight control and ultimately robbed them and their families of earnings and royalties that were rightfully theirs. Travel back with us now to a time when great artists like Johnny Adams were just getting started and learn the truth about what it meant to be black, uneducated and truly gifted during the 50's and 60's. a time when some of the greatest music ever heard was sung to a nation and some of our most gifted black artists struggled for just a small taste of equality. The Johnny Adams story may shock you; it may even anger you; but one thing is certain.it will inspire and teach you that even when it seems the whole world is conspiring against you; that love is still the binder that holds the pages of life together.
