Ain’t I a Woman (?/!): Audio Frequencies is the reimagining of a collection of poetry that speaks to the plight of African-American women as well as personal narratives that archive the journey I am undergoing as a liberated Black woman. Interwoven with sound, music and voice, Ain’t I a Woman (?/!): Audio Frequencies is an experience rather than an ordinary audio book. Born out of the realm of performance art and poetry, spilling over into experimental sound art is the sojourn of this project.
