Disgrace Your Stereotype: Noah Sow on Punk, Freedom and Living Your Truth | Identity (Self-in-world) | Scoop.it

You can bet there will always be a million pigeonholes people can’t wait to stuff you inside. As a black woman in the punk music scene, Noah Sow of Noiseaux, flips the bird to each and every one. When asked how it feels to be black, German and doing punk music, Noah replied: “I’m educated enough to know that “Black music” is [many things]…you bet whenever I open my mouth to sing, what comes out is Black music by definition.” Noiseaux has even created their own music genre, Afropunk Chanson, which they’ll have people headbanging to on their upcoming tour with 24-7 Spyz, one of the most influential black bands in the punk scene.

A Teachable Racial Moment: Why Do Black Folks Stick Together?

A Teachable Racial Moment: Why Do Black Folks Stick Together? | Identity (Self-in-world) | Scoop.it

"...the common heritage that most Black folks in this country share leads to what is called
“linked fate” among African Americans, a term explored in Michael C. Dawson’s book, Behind
the Mule: Race and Class in African American Politics. Linked fate means that, for many
African Americans, what happens to a Black individual is felt by many in the “racial” group,
whether that event is joyous or tragic.

 

This does not mean that others individuals who aren’t Black can’t feel joy or sorrow at
these events, but it does mean that Black folks feel particular emotions, as if the event
impacted our own families. Linked fate means that I consider forty million people to be
literal brothers and sisters."
