Carlota GuerreroSolange needs your help. The vocalist is asking fans to assist in creating an academic syllabus for a potential college course based on her critically acclaimed album A Seat at the Table.
Women between the ages of 16-30 are being asked to “share stories using texts, music and visual art that speak to their personal experiences,” for “A Seat at the Table Syllabus: The Truths of Young Women of Color.”
The singer’s Saint Heron website further explains, “Solange’s album uncovers many truths and speaks freely on issues that directly affect women of color and it is time for all of us to join in on the conversation.”
Contributors are being invited to think about topics including how their ancestors may have experienced discrimination, the shaping of one’s understanding of sexuality and the role of their relationships with various people.
Professor and television host Melissa Harris-Perry, Wake Forest University students and other scholars are the team spearheading the effort.
Anyone interested in submitting material will have until January 31 to do so and can head to seatsyllabus.com.
