Visions and Revisions in Popular Music

8:00pm EST


The story of popular music—the meaning and legacy of its key figures and unrecognized innovators, and how it has both shaped and reflected the societal forces, conversations and revolutions of our times—is forever being written and rewritten. Explore with three bold chroniclers of sound and politics: Sasha Geffen (Glitter Up the Dark: How Pop Music Broke the Binary), Maureen Mahon (Black Diamond Queens: African American Women and Rock and Roll), and Marcus J. Moore (The Butterfly Effect: How Kendrick Lamar Ignited the Soul of Black America). Moderated by Bandcamp’s Jes Skolnik.
