What Are You Doing Here?: A Black Woman's Life and Liberation in Heavy Metal
Laina Dawes is not always the only black woman at metal shows, and she's not always the only headbanger among her black female friends.
In her first book, the Canadian critic and music fan questions herself, her headbanging heroes, and dozens of black punk, metal, and hard rock fans to answer the knee-jerk question she's heard a hundred times in the small clubs where her favorite bands play: "What are you doing here?"
