Royster Book Reading 2/19 - Sounding Like No-No: Queer Sounds and Eccentric Acts in the Post-Soul Era

by Alexis Burson 2/18/2013 1:12:00 PM

Sounding Like A No-NoPlease join us in celebrating the book launch of Sounding Like  No-No: Queer Sounds and Eccentric Acts in the Post-Soul Era, written by Dr. Francesca Royster (DePaul African & Black Diaspora Studies, English Department, Department of Women's and Gender Studies).

"Sounding Like a No-No traces a rebelious spirit in post-civil rights black music by focusing on a range of offbeat, eccentric, queer, or slippery performances by leading musicians influenced by the cultural changes brought about by the civil rights, black nationalist, feminist and LBGTQ movements, who through reinvention created a repertoire of performances that have left a lasting mark on popular music."1
