    Chicago author, Sesali Bowen, of Bad Fat Black Girl: Notes from a trap Feminist is coming to the Silverroom! Join us for a conversation moderated by Mikki Boom to learn more, followed by book signing for your chance to meet Sesali.

    About the book...

    Chicago author, Sesali Bowen, of Bad Fat Black Girl: Notes from a trap Feminist is coming to the Silverroom! Join us for a conversation moderated by Mikki Boom to learn more, followed by book signing for your chance to meet Sesali.

    Complimentary light Snacks + Beverages provided.

    About the book:

    From funny and fearless entertainment journalist Sesali Bowen, Bad Fat Black Girl combines rule-breaking feminist theory, witty and insightful personal memoir, and cutting cultural analysis for an unforgettable, genre-defining debut.

    Growing up on the south side of Chicago, Sesali Bowen learned early on how to hustle, stay on her toes, and champion other Black women and femmes as she navigated Blackness, queerness, fatness, friendship, poverty, sex work, and self-love.

    Her love of trap music led her to the top of hip-hop journalism, profiling game-changing artists like Megan Thee Stallion, Lizzo, and Janelle Monae. But despite all the beauty, complexity, and general badassery she saw, Bowen found none of that nuance represented in mainstream feminism. Thus, she coined Trap Feminism, a contemporary framework that interrogates where feminism meets today's hip-hop.

    Bad Fat Black Girl offers a new, inclusive feminism for the modern world. Weaving together searing personal essay and cultural commentary, Bowen interrogates sexism, fatphobia, and capitalism all within the context of race and hip-hop. In the process, she continues a Black feminist legacy of unmatched sheer determination and creative resilience.

    Bad bitches: this one’s for you.

    Hyde Park Jazz Festival



    “If music is the place-then Jazz is the City” hear it live at the Hyde Park Jazz Festival.

    “If music is the place-then Jazz is the City” hear it live at the Hyde Park Jazz Festival. Chicago’s upbeat jazz scene will be prominently featured for two days during the 13th annual festival dedicated to Chicago’s most critically acclaimed artists as well as nationally and internationally recognized talents.

    Described as a “near-perfect marriage of music and setting,” by Chicago Magazine, the Hyde Park Jazz Festival is the essence of a first class festival. Presented on 14 stages across Hyde Park, this remarkable two-day free festival showcases collaboration between academic, cultural and community institutions, and local businesses to present over 30 bands in a variety of settings throughout the Hyde Park neighborhood. Over 20,000 jazz fans and enthusiasts will gather at the event to enjoy more than 18 hours of free, nonstop jazz performances.

    In addition to embracing the end of summer, and the smooth jazz melodies that made the city famous, festival goers will get the chance to get a first-hand look at the historic Chicago neighborhood of Hyde Park. First held in 2007, the Hyde Park Jazz Festival was created to bring new audiences in to the many arts and cultural organizations in Hyde Park and to celebrate jazz’s great legacy and bright future on Chicago’s South Side.

    Please note, certain areas of the festival stay open until 12am on Saturday.

    Admission to the Hyde Park Jazz Fest is a suggested $5 donation.

    For the last two years books have become a big part of the Silverroom. What was once primarily a Jewelry and Apparel store is now a bookstore too, and we love all of it! Curated entirely by our community, our collection of books has evolved from a recommended few from Eric Williams and staff, into a cultural selection that mixes contemporary with classic, and poetry with visual art. It evolves and changes with monthly themes and recommendations from our community in-store and online, and has created profound virtual Book Talks with so many amazing Authors.

    Fast forward to Spring 2022, we finally launched our first ever Silverroom Book Club!

    Meeting every Second Tuesday of the month, we welcome you all to join us to discuss a new book every month selected by all who join. Hosted by Bobby & Chunghwa at the Silverroom, our second Book Club meeting will be on Tuesday, September 13, from 6PM-8PM CST - Participation in-store and/or online welcome!

    With a flair for sonic experimentation, CKay fuses the ebullient sound of Afrobeats with touches of emo, pop, and psychedelic ambience to create a visionary creative approach of his own. Born Chukwuka Ekweani, the 26-year-old artist made his debut with 2019’s CKay The First EP, highlighted by the original release of “Love Nwantiti”. The track soon found a world-spanning audience, including a featured placement on Diddy’s hugely successful 2020 virtual dance-a-thon fundraiser on Instagram Live. A popular series of worldwide remixes followed, as did a milestone feature and co-production credit on Nigerian superstar Davido’s hit “La La (Ft. CKay.)” This was followed by a key track on breakout Ghanaian-American Afrobeats star Amaarae’s acclaimed 2020 LP, The Angel You Don’t Know.

    February 2021 saw CKay’s return with his highly anticipated sophomore EP, Boyfriend featuring guest appearances from Amaarae, Bianca Costa, Oxlade & KiDi. The lead single, “Felony”,reached #1 on an array of leading African charts and playlists and is projected for platinum certification in Nigeria. CKay is currently in the studio working on his first full-length studio album, pushing his already omnivorous sound and style to even greater heights of creativity. CKay is determined to reach his fast-growing global audience eager for his next exciting release.
