Music and Culture
Welcome to the Music and Culture section of Inside A Black Girls Mind.
This is a place where you can catch a vibe unapologetically as a Brown Skin Girl so come be inspired. Here is where you can find musical history, reviews, artist profiles, playlists, events and more. Music and culture is important to us because it’s a way to connect with the diaspora, and we also recognise that it’s heavily rooted and embedded in Black culture which is worth celebrating.
Music is just as political as it is creative and expressive; the industry is highly dominated by white people and men despite the abundance of flourishing talent from Black women and women of colour. Our page is dedicated to ensuring the most marginalised are not erased from their own history. Music is a reflection of the people; it tells stories, heals wounds and restores relationships. We will not shy away from addressing all of the facets of music and culture whether it’s lack of representation or how growing up with it has impacted our lives.
Meet your Music & Culture Editors
"I’ll be writing about the many ways music and its wider culture overlap with Black issues, beauty, identity and lived experiences".
Denique - Music Editor
In my eyes, if you dive deep enough into the roots of the music industry, one will always find Black creators firmly at the helm of its evolving journey through genres, trends and tropes.
