the black female singer/songwriter is a tricky proposition.  I can name many white ones, from Bjork to Carole King to Joni Mitchell.  But I could think of their black equivalents that could be on the same list as Stevie Wonder, Prince and Smokey Robinson.  But there are a lot of artists whose process I don't know.  Please enlighten me!

And yes, I"m a huge Cassandra Wilson fan, but when it comes to female singers are are so many greats I left off the list.  I could do another ten names without breaking a sweat.

I have, over time, been convinced that I have been too hard on Whitney.  Jamie Foxx in particular gave a very persuasive argument one day.  He told me basically every great female singer I love is a fan of Whitney.
