Steely Dames: Black Women Electric Guitarists and the (Re)Enchantment of the Black Female Body

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The electric guitar is an iconic American instrument crucial to the evolution of Southern-bred blues and rock. Ongoing masculinist bias in canonical scholarship about the two genres obscures pioneering contributions of musicians like Memphis Minnie, Peggy “Lady Bo” Jones, and Tamar-kali. My research focuses on the largely unresearched cultural history of such women. Their racialized and gendered uses of electric guitar technology enabled them to generate critical and creative imaginative narratives about black female identity and the black female body. Their public presence, performance, and self-representational choices enabled them to reconstruct themselves and restructure spaces in the American cultural imagination.
