Solange taught us all some valuable lessons with her critically-acclaimed third studio album A Seat at the Table: she's much more than Beyonce's little sister, Master P is a national treasure, Tina Knowles deserves the world, etc., etc.
The album spoke brilliantly to America's racial strife and the complexities of black identity, and in keeping with its theme of edification, scholars from Wake Forest University, led by Melissa Harris-Perry, are developing a course syllabus inspired by A Seat at the Table.
The deadline for submissions is January 31--click here for more info.
Of course, this isn't the Knowles' first entree to academia: last year, the University of Antonio announced a course on sister Bey's Lemonade, "Black Women, Beyonce & Popular Culture," focusing on black feminism and the role of race in America.
I'm really looking forward to the day when all college courses are determined by the Sisters Knowle, for the course load alone. "Losing You: The Politics of Making Me Your Enemy"; "Single Ladies? Putting A Ring On It in the Age of Conscious Uncoupling"; "Things Tina Taught Me: Tips for Being the Greatest Mother of Literally All Time."
