Eileen M. Hayes argues that the women's music festival, with its
foundation in lesbian feminism, is a significant institutional site
for the emergence of black feminist consciousness in the
contemporary period. She offers sage perspectives on black women's
involvement in the women's music festival scene, the ramifications
of their performances as drag kings in those environments, and the
challenges and joys of a black lesbian retreat based on the
feminist festival model. With acuity and candor, Hayes elucidates
why this music scene matters. Veteran vocalist, percussionist, and
producer Linda Tillery provides a foreword.
