Black WOMEN Rock! is a 15-year-old rock and roll movement spearheaded by poet and activist, jessica Care moore. More than a rock concert, BWR is a movement that supports internationally known black women rock artists and musicians across the country.

A tribute to Betty Davis and other trailblazing women who came before them, the self-proclaimed Daughters of Betty are a cultural force in an industry that often doesn’t celebrate their intellectual power, self-empowered lyrics, independence, and sexually confident music.

Performers include:
Liza Colby
Celisse Henderson
V Bozeman
Shelley Nicole
Militia Fox
Steffanie Christi’an
jessica Care moore
Ideeyah
Kia Ifani Warren
