“‘Rolling in the Deep’: Aretha Franklin and the Makings of Modern Black Womanhood” - Keynote Lecture by Daphne Brooks

Thursday, November 3: 7 p.m.

“‘Rolling in the Deep’: Aretha Franklin and the Makings of Modern Black Womanhood” - Keynote Lecture by Daphne Brooks, Professor of English and African-American Studies, Princeton University

This lecture explores the rich and diverse complexities of Aretha Franklin's musical artistry—from her early recording career at Columbia Records in the early 1960s to her pop breakthrough later that decade. It examines new ways to read Ms. Franklin's virtuosity as both a vocalist and instrumentalist as a form of sonic black feminism.  Through the work of Aretha Franklin, this talk aims to consider how classic soul music and the politics of modern black womanhood are indelibly linked to one another. 

This event is free and reservations are not required.  Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. It will be at Case Western Reserve University's Ford Auditorium, Allen Memorial Medical Library, 11000 Euclid Avenue

In memory of Phil Everly, who passed away in January of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the 2014 Annual Music Masters will create awareness for the disease, which affects an estimated 24 million individuals in the United States. The progressive lung diseases include emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. Despite being the third leading cause of death in the United States, there is very little research funding for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD is a preventable and treatable disease but the lack of research, awareness and education has resulted in millions of unnecessary hospitalizations, complications and even deaths of patients. The COPD Foundation’s mission is to prevent and cure COPD and to improve the lives of all people affected by COPD.
