I had to Google something like "black women" and "guitarists," lol
Just stumbled across a book called Black Women and Music: More Than the Blues by Eileen M. Hayes and Linda F. Williams.
In it is an essay I absolutely must read entitled, "Black Women Guitarists and the Authenticity of the Blues" by Maria V. Johnson
Yay for Dr. Johnson whoever she is!
Will hit up the library tomorrow to get this book!
