Black Women Rock returns for its 13th year

The annual Detroit event celebrates black women and their contributions to rock music

Returning for its 13th year, Black Women Rock is a night of rock and roll performances by black women performers. This year’s theme, “Black WOMEN Rock! REBEL WOMEN,” celebrates and challenges women to resist in today’s current social and political climate.

“Black women are underrepresented in rock music and culture, yet our contributions are innumerable,” Event founder jessica CARE moore says.

In addition to a performance by moore, this year will also includes performances by Tamar-Kali, Navasha Daya, Jessie Wagner, Zakiya Harris, and Divinity Roxx.  

“This year’s event is in honor of the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion,” moore says. “The rebellion highlighted the social and economic conditions of the city and was a key moment in the civil rights movement.”

On Sunday, the event will conclude with a free sister fire circle conversation which will focus on radical healing, institution building and art in the time of spiritual war on March 19 at 1 p.m.

The event will take place at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History at 8 p.m. on March 18. Tickets to the Saturday performances are $40 and available at the Wright Museum and online. For more information, visit blackwomenrock.com.
