Black Diamond Queens, the second book from Maureen Mahon is an examination of African-American women in rock. The book is not only a fascinating study of their achievements, but also illustrates their wide inﬂuence in the genre. From Big Mama Thornton and her original version “Hound Dog” to girl group The Shirelles and of course, Tina Turner. Despite their contribution, these legends weren't always paid their dues, ﬁguratively and/or ﬁnancially. Black Diamond Queens is a beautiful celebration of the talent and struggles these women. Black Diamond Queens is available from Duke University Press, along with her ﬁrst book, Right to Rock: The Cultural Politics of Race.
