What Are You Doing Here?: A Black Woman's Life and Liberation in Heavy Metal
by Laina Dawes Author
With a personal Foreward by rocker Skin, What Are You Doing Here reveals the dual-outsider dilemma of black women entering the heavy metal, punk, and hardcore music worlds. Laina walks readers through her lifelong love of metal, her ostracism in the communities she traveled through, and the very real racism and sexism she encounters in pursuit of her passions.
Buttressed by stories from scores of other black women, her keen observations and personal stories praise the emotional catharsis of loud, fast music, and explores the very real world she's had to fight to be a part of.
