Jimi Hendrix, the 1960s Counterculture, and Confirmations and Critiques of US Cultural Mythologies

  • Aaron Lefkovitz


This chapter centers Hendrix’s contested US national identity and participation in a visual-cultural and popular musical Black Atlantic that has been confined within, while maneuvering beyond, the slave trade’s borders. Centering Hendrix within a legacy of black popular music’s transnational routes, this chapter highlights his musical and extra-musical roles as a transnational symbol. This chapter places Hendrix, and rock music more generally, in histories of the 1960s counterculture (especially the Woodstock Festival), US exceptionalist myths, and the cultural Cold War.
