Thrashing Away From “History”

To reclaim the idea that Women of Color invented Rock/Punk Rock seems to be a fruitless task. In a time where it seems bigots only want to accept that a rich cis white man who died on his toilet invented rock, the risks virtually seem to outweigh the benefits. It’s no easy task to take in nor an easy goal to reach. But I feel that teen girls of color (TGoC) are ready to reclaim the voice that was so easily taken away. We won’t back down, and I hope that we’ll never give up until full recognition is given to the WoC who defined Punk/Rock as we know it.
