Black Girlhood
Abstract:This thesis is an exploration of the creation and performance of the song “Jazzy Belle Retell/tale” created by Jessica Robinson, a member of the black girl band, We Levitate. This thesis explores the making of the retell/tale of a popular song by the hip hop group, OutKast as a practice of black girlhood music making. Moreover, this thesis will investigate the use of this music making as a tool for decolonizing research on and about Black girls’ lived experiences and their artistic visions. Ultimately, I seek to develop a language for a framework I am naming, sonic black girlhood to conceptualize the sounded artful lives of Black girlhood experience.
