Black Sound & the Archive: Valerie June

Valerie June is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. During this event, which is part of the “Black Sound and the Archive” working group, she will be in conversation with Daphne Brooks, Professor of African American Studies and Theater Studies.

“Black Sound and the Archive,” led by Yale Professors Daphne Brooks and Brian Kane, explores the untapped variety of black sound archives — moving beyond the records, musical recordings, and oral histories traditionally showcased. The monthly collaborative workshop will bring out for collective study neglected items held by Yale’s preeminent black-culture collections and develop new ways of listening to the archive of black sound.

“Black Sound and the Archive” has been made possible through a 320 York Humanities Programming Endowment grant.
