What Are You Doing Here?
A Black Woman's Life and Liberation in Heavy Metal
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In her nuanced, extremely perceptive book, Laina Dawes champions the liberating possibilities of metal while questioning the color-blindness of the metal world, celebrating the role of black women in creating rock music, examining the reaction of the black community to black punks and metalheads, and sorting out the gender issues that complicate sisterhood in a male-dominated sphere. Her thoughtful treatise on the power of music and identity challenges black women in the metal scene to join forces and spark a fresh revolution.
