⚠️⚠️ Been sitting on this one for second, but I’m so proud to announce that the guys and I will be taking the stage at Newport Folk Festival in July! This is a dream come true for us. We’ve partnered with the festival and Jessi Zazu, Inc. to raise funds for the late Jessi Zazu’s foundation for youth arts education, women’s health and social justice initiatives. Aside from bringing y’all the blues, we are working to keep the legacy of Jessi Zazu alive and well! 💕 #nffmusiceducation #newportfolkfestival2019 #dopequeentour 📷: Shervin Lainez

80 years ago Billie Holiday recorded “Strange Fruit” At the time of its recording, the South was attempting to downplay the brutal legacy of slavery and the rise of Jim Crow in its wake. It relied on literature and media steeped in pastoral imagery of a peaceful, simplistic region to color the public’s perception of the South. Strange Fruit lances a blade through the propaganda and uses the pastoral technique to highlight the truth of lynching, of black bodies swinging in the southern breeze. It is as timely today in 2019 as when Lady Day first sang it. This is art at its most potent—when it speaks truth to the face of awesome, abusive power. We continue to do the work of bearing witness to this Strange Fruit. x AV

For #worldpoetryday i would like to share a poem with you guys. written in the voice of a black woman navigating the Jim Crow-era Delta—she is unpropertied, unprotected and wholly unmastered. i was moved to bring this woman life alongside my sisters of the Blair House Collective, Caroline Randall Williams and Ciona Rouse together we are writing to keep these voices alive. her name is rosie. i can’t wait to continue to share her story with you. 🌹

“Whenever I'm asked why Southern writers particularly have a penchant for writing about freaks, I say it is because we are still able to recognize one. * * * To be able to recognize a freak, you have to have some conception of the whole man, and in the South the general conception of man is still, in the main, theological. * * * That is a large statement, and it is dangerous to make it, for almost anything you say about Southern belief can be denied in the next breath with equal propriety. But approaching the subject from the standpoint of the writer, I think it is safe to say that while the South is hardly Christ-centered, it is most certainly Christ-haunted.” #flanneryoconnor #stuckinthesouth #christhauntedsouth #freakflag 📷: Nolan Knight

so proud to have my tune “Dope Queen Blues” named as VuHaus‘s Song Of The Day. It’s one of our favorites to perform live and owes so much of its swagger to Victoria Spivey’s classic “Dope Head Blues”. Both songs are about wild woman who ain’t trying to do right.

i used the blues on “silences” to speak back down my lineage to the women who walked the south, who may not have been able to tell their own stories. in this way, communicating with our ancestors, we keep the blues alive. we reclaim the blues as a vessel of black genius. i ended each show on the #dopequeentour with a sample of Billie Holiday’s “Lady Sings the Blues” as a reminder to everyone in the crowd to tell their stories. to sing their blues. 🕷🖤🕷 #silences #reclaimingtheblues #blackgirlmagic 📷: T McDonald Photography
