“‘Rolling in the Deep’: Aretha Franklin and the Makings of Modern Black Womanhood” - Keynote Lecture by Daphne Brooks

Thursday, November 3: 7 p.m.

“‘Rolling in the Deep’: Aretha Franklin and the Makings of Modern Black Womanhood” - Keynote Lecture by Daphne Brooks, Professor of English and African-American Studies, Princeton University

This lecture explores the rich and diverse complexities of Aretha Franklin's musical artistry—from her early recording career at Columbia Records in the early 1960s to her pop breakthrough later that decade. It examines new ways to read Ms. Franklin's virtuosity as both a vocalist and instrumentalist as a form of sonic black feminism.  Through the work of Aretha Franklin, this talk aims to consider how classic soul music and the politics of modern black womanhood are indelibly linked to one another. 

This event is free and reservations are not required.  Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. It will be at Case Western Reserve University's Ford Auditorium, Allen Memorial Medical Library, 11000 Euclid Avenue
