Big Mama Thornton at the crossroads

The cultural intersection between race, gender, class and religion sure as hell is busy!
Exhibit # (…we lost count): An African American woman singing a song written for her by white male Jewish songwriters and later made much more famous by a certain Southern white man (frequently accused of “stealing black music”)?
Mercy! However does a lady know where to throw her allegiances? Feminist activist bell hooks calls these competing sets of identity markers “intersectionality”.
And we call it more lung power for your Strumpet Trumpet!
