PATHS Speaker’s Series

  • Date: Wednesday Feb. 24, 2021
  • Time: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
  • Dr. Tammy Kernodle, Musicology Professor from Miami University, Oxford "More than Dancing: Black Women, Black Music and the Mythology of Post-Racial America." In the wake of Barack Obama's election in 2008 political pundits and cultural critics began declaring that the election of the first African-American President was representative of America moving into a period of post-racialism. This notion of post-racialism was not simply based in political ideology, but also in the continuous globalization of black culture, especially black music. As Obama prepared to launch his re-election campaign, a series of violent events began to undermine this notion of post Racial America. This presentation looks at four key events during Obama's second administration as a lens to understanding the current wave of protest culture that has coincided with the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and other variant social movements. It will specifically focus on the cultural responses of black women as a method of illuminating the long and varied history of black women musicians in shaping and promoting a public rhetoric of social change.
