Black Guitar Goddesses




The love of music and musicianship is a common theme throughout my blog (hint, hint). Inspired by a picture of Norma Jean Wofford “The Duchess“ & my own personal devotions, I decided to compile a list featuring Black women guitarists. Women , in general ,  are usually not known for this skill , and Black women even more scarcely . Despite there being many highly skilled Black women guitarists throughout recent musical history . Although their impact usually goes unacknowledged, it is immense & undeniable! The Music ! the Talent! & the Glamour ! Thank You to all the musicians on this list for being you! your dedication , & contributions!!! To those below who are no longer with us , Rest in Paradise Queens. Click their names for more info! Take a look below, xo
