Welcome

Welcome to the Black Women In Rock archive of blackwomeninrock.info. Here you can find information on black women in a variety of music genres, all of them related to Rock. This site is no longer being updated, but it is my hope that the information I’ve been able to collect here can still serve some use.

Most of the posts here have been pulled from the Black Women In Rock Tumblr page, which was the original location for the blog. (The Tumblr blog is somewhat active, though not as active as it’s been in the past). Those posts have been embedded here, with easier ways to search content, and easier access to post categories and tags.

NOTE: There is a bug where, when you move onto the second page of content, the Tumblr embeds turn into links. Refreshing the page will load the content properly. (I converted all of the posts that had a corresponding Tumblr post into embeds, not realizing that this bug was an issue. By the time I realized it, most of the posts had already been converted this way. Last time I take a shortcut on anything, I guess. 😛 )

Any questions can be directed to jaleesa@blackwomeninrock.info

Thank you for visiting!

BWIR Site Update: Music Genre Categories To Be Added

Hi All — I’m planning on adding music genre categories to all of the posts. One of the most frequent questions I get from people tends to be related to finding Black Women Rockers who are tied to a specific genre. It has always been my intention that this blog be used as a resource above anything else, and making it easier for you to get the information you are looking for is always a priority.

Tagging the thousands of posts that have accumulated on this blog will take some time, but I will soldier through it and post another update once this process has been completed. The music genres will be listed under the ‘Categories’ section so they can easily be found.

If there’s any features you would like to see here, or if you have any other questions or comments, feel free to reach out to the blog in either the comments section on this post, or by email (jaleesa@blackwomeninrock.info). I always welcome feedback and never mind serving as a sort of librarian to help anyone find information. 🙂

Thanks!

Currently migrating from Tumblr to WordPress

Hi there! The blog is in the process of being moved from Tumblr to WordPress. Some posts may look extremely out of wack as a result. Please bear with us while things get set up and cleaned up. Thanks!

EDIT: Some posts lost their attribution in the import process. If you see something that’s yours and would like to be credited for it, please email jaleesa@blackwomeninrock.info with the link in question, and we will fix it for you. Thanks!

EDIT (11/11/2016): Migration is complete as of today. Some posts that are on the Tumblr version of the blog weren’t uploaded here — they either were off-topic, were duplicates, or were hard to organize because of the loss of attribution. Enjoy the content going forward, and thanks for sticking by us!
