A website has launched to encourage people to add to a collaborative syllabus. The topic of focus will be breaking down Solange’s 2016 album “A Seat At The Table.” The course will be focusing on “The Truths of Young Women of Color.” The areas of focus are to be determined and organized by students and professors alike. The college highly encourages young women of color to participate. The site reads:
“Solange Knowles’s ‘A Seat at the Table’ has been one of the most reflective and popular albums produced by a young black woman that speaks to issues of race, womanhood, and equality. At the beginning this new year, and as we witness the inauguration of a new president, we invite young women of color, ages 16-30, to have a seat at the table by helping us collect the texts, music, and visual art that speak to our experiences.”
So far, the course has been divided into 5 parts: Resisting Racism, Understanding Gender and Sexuality, the Role of Relationships, Nurturing Ourselves, and A Seat at the Lunch Table. You can check out some of Solange’s work below.
