Black women have voiced and penned some of the most popular songs in American music history. From Gertrude “Ma” Rainey to Lizzo, Respect Her Crank!: Writing Sounds of Blackness examines the delicate craft of songwriting through influential Black women singer-songwriters. Renowned singer-songwriter Amber Mimz facilitates multiple songwriting workshops designed to comprehensively teach elements of quality songwriting in various genres of music.

Analyze the work of Erykah Badu, Lil’ Kim, and Ari Lennox to explore how RnB singers sample vocal melodies and lyrics of the past. Then, create your own vocal sample using Sample-Stitch and Audiobridge
