Tentative Title: Sites of Sound: Nina Simone’s Diasporic Citizenship in the Post-Civil Rights Imagination
Panel Description: This panel of scholars, artists, writers, and black feminist storytellers will excavate the contemporary legacies of Black women musicians, graphic artists, writers, and photographers whose work has troubled archival memories of performances in blues, jazz, soul, rock, R&B and beyond; whose influence has shaped the civil rights movement and global pan-Africanism; and whose life stories are revealed in film, the Black comics industry, and festivals. In the process, they disrupt the gendered mores of musical, visual and artistic genres.
