Black Women Rock!

The full title to this most worthy event is “Black Women Rock! An all-star tribute to Betty Davis,” and in addition to the live show, there’s also a panel discussion and five-day art show. Revolutionary funk singer Betty Davis got the Commodores signed to Motown, wrote “Uptown” for the Chambers Brothers, married Miles Davis in the late ’60s, and turned him on to psychedelic rock. Davis also wrote and produced all of her albums after her first, and was incredibly ahead of her time. This showcase brings together Ideeyah, Nik West, Steffanie Christ’ian, Shelly Nicole, Kisma, and more to honor her. Regular admission is sold out but an overflow area will be open for a donation of $5 that will go toward helping the children of Flint.
