Register here for Yale Library Book Talk online with Prof. Daphne Brooks. Prof. Brooks will talk about the research and writing of Liner Notes for the Revolution: The Intellectual Life of Black Feminist Sound (Harvard UP, 2021) which explores more than a century of music archives to examine the critics, collectors, and listeners who have determined perceptions of Black women on stage and in the recording studio. Ruthan McTyre, director of Gilmore Music Library, will lead the discussion and audience Q&A.

Daphne Brooks is the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of African American Studies and Professor of Theater Studies, American Studies, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. This event is online, free and open to all with pre-registration.
