In the era of 1950’s-1960’s Second-Wave feminism, it was music of The Girl Groups (The Ronettes, The Shangri-Las, The Crystals, etc.) that defined the sound of popular music. It was music that gave voice to the challenges and dreams of women, made international superstars out of many – particularly women of color – and united America during the Jim Crow and desegregation years. However, too often this music is unfairly marginalized as novelty and repeatedly discussed as a cultural placeholder – or, the moment between Elvis and The Beatles – and the contributions of these women is often minimized, overshadowed by the careers of the men that surrounded them (The Beach Boys, Phil Spector, Barry Gordy, Elvis, The Beatles, et al).
She's A Rebel is inspired by the important legacy these women left on our musical heritage, as well current social unrest for people of color and the need to continue supporting issues of racial justice in America. Now in it's third year, the mission of this event remains to continue fostering a diverse community in Nashville by connecting and integrating women whose unique voices and diverse talents make our city so distinctive. It is also a time to recognize and celebrate the important legacy of the women who came before us, as well as The Movement For Black Lives during African American History Month.
