Gund Gallery Weekly Playlist: Black Women/Black Lives

This is the first of our blog’s new featured playlist. Each week, the Gund Gallery will be releasing playlists based on the themes concentrated on by the Gallery for the week.

For this week’s playlist, we’re focusing solely on black female artists. As explored in the Gallery exhibit Black Women/Black Lives black women’s contributions to music and art are unfortunately largely ignored by American media. This playlist explores decades of spectacular music produced by black women in the United States. Keep in mind that some of the artists featured on this playlist produced their work much before the Civil Rights act was passed in 1964. These women’s musical accomplishments are truly incredible.
