The recent Black Girls Rock extravaganza was a stirring success. But black girls have been rocking for a long time. Rock and roll, heavy metal, soft rock, indie rock, black women have done it all. Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, the list goes on.
It takes more than a sultry voice and guitar lick to make you a rockin’ black girl. You’ve got to command the stage (Google ‘Baby G’ from Shinobi Ninja). You’ve got to summon the fury, and foolishness, to jump into the mosh pit and bang.
But what about today? Who are the rising voices reppin’ on the rock tip?
