Poet, writer, performer, and activist Pamela Sneed leads a celebration of the role of the women and femme architects of rhythm and blues as well as rock and roll. The multifaceted artist is joined by her band for a tribute to Big Mama Thornton and other female legends on Friday evening, and then leads a salon on Saturday featuring a roundtable discussion exploring the significance and legacy of Juke Joint and how the rebel spirit of these female innovators lives on today at the intersection of political commentary, music, and cabaret culture. The day is punctuated with a performance by singer-songwriter and playwright Stew, who premieres a new cabaret piece featuring songs and texts that explore the role of an audience as a collaborator to the storyteller drawn from his experiences as a Black artist in the punk clubs of his youth, on Broadway, and now in Ivy league universities. Following Stew’s performance, award-winning Black feminist music critic Daphne Brooks leads a roundtable discussion exploring the significance and legacy of the Juke Joint and how the rebel spirit of Black and female innovators lives on today at the intersection of political commentary, music, and cabaret culture.
