It is my honor to inform you that our peer-reviewed, ProudFlesh: New Afrikan Journal of Culture, Politics and Consciousness has published “Body Politics: Representations and the Impact of Black Women in Music” as Issue 13. This timely issues focuses on the ever current topic of body politics. Never a dull moment, this exciting issue peels the onion to examine the representation and impact of Black women in music. The issue also focuses on Beyoncé’s formation, colorism, agency, wearable art, identity, resistance, Eurocentrism, sex, etc. All these analysis gets written in a way that offers a new reading.
The lovely guest-editor, Cherise Charleswell, MPH did a fantastic job of weaving a multifaceted analysis and creative works that critically dealt with body politics in United States, Caribbean and Africa. The special-issue is a refreshing take. The last piece will leave you breathless. Dare I say more?
This dynamic issue will make an excellent reading for courses on women, music, black women, popular culture, sex, body politics, identity, dancehall, female power, misogynoir, and yoga.
