The Nona Hendryx Experience

For all her musical experiments, Nona has always been a rocker, and as a black woman in that arena, she’s always faced prejudice. Is the path any easier now for black women in rock music? “It’s as tough as ever for emerging artists,” she says. “Rock and roll is not considered black music. It’s been co-opted by the white audience, and it’s difficult to reclaim as our own. Radio dictates what rock is, and its parameters are increasingly narrow.”
