“What Are You Doing Here? A Black Woman’s Life in Liberation in Heavy Metal” Book Discussion with author Laina Dawes

“What Are You Doing Here?” investigates how black women musicians and fans navigate the metal, hardcore, and punk music genres that are regularly thought of as inclusive spaces and centered on a community spirit, but fail to block out the race and gender issues that exist in the outside world.

* This event is co-sponsored by the Bulls Head Bookshop. Presented in conjunction with the Diaspora Festival of Black and Independent Film’s 7 pm screening of A Band Called Death

 This event is Free and Open to the Public.  Please RSVP to stonecenter@unc.edu, 919-962-9001 or via Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/280664645405895/
