Nasty Gal: The Music, Fashion, and Sexual Politics of Betty Davis


Join Nona Hendryx and special guests for an immersive evening exploring the world of Betty Davis, including her trailblazing path in music, her role as a fashion icon, and the importance of her sexual politics. Nona will be joined by Greg Errico (Producer and drums on Betty's first album), Dr. Danielle Maggio (associate producer of documentary Betty - They Say I'm Different), Jessica Care Moore (poet and executive producer of Black WOMEN Rock!), and model Winona Williams, with musical interludes by legendary DJ, songwriter, and producer Ultra Naté.

"Betty Davis was an iconoclast, a shape shifter, and a woman on fire—singing and setting alight everything in her path. With eyes ablaze, heels pounding, strutting across a stage, she was a phantasmagorical peacock, speaking her truth. Like quicksilver, she imagined and defined her own beliefs and visions."
