Solange continues to use her third studio album A Seat At The Table as a tool to inspire and advocate for women of color. And in her latest stunt to continue the conversation, the singer-songwriter and those inspired by her work are calling on other women for help. Women between the ages of 16-30 are being asked to submit various works to a create a syllabus inspired by her recent album.
“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,” a statement reads on Solange’s publication Saint Heron. The syllabus will compile a series of stories, texts, music, and visual art that explore the five themes of understanding gender and sexuality, the role of relationships, nurturing ourselves, resisting racism, and “a seat at the lunch table.”
The curators behind the project include political commentator Melissa Harris-Perry, Wake Forest University students, and other scholars. The particulars about how the syllabus will be utilized once it’s complete are still unclear, but for all those who are interested in submitting material, you can do so by heading to seatsyllabus.com. The deadline to submit is Jan. 31.
