Dr. Tammy L. Kernodle is a specialist in African American Music and gender studies in music, and Professor of Musicology at Miami University. This presentation will historicize the role of black women musicians in framing the sonic contexts of civil rights or protest music. Specific emphasis will be placed on contemporary artists — such as Lauryn Hill, Rhiannon Giddens, and Janelle Monáe — who have shaped the current context of protest culture that extends through various contemporary social movements, including Black Lives Matter, Time’s Up, and the #MeToo Movement.
