Solange Knowles' latest album, A Seat at the Table, is to be the focus of a new college syllabus.
A team of students and scholars are accepting submissions from young women of colour to help put together a syllabus on website Seatsyllabus.
The classroom instruction paper will focus on five subject areas: resisting racism, understanding gender and sexuality, the role of relationships, and nurturing ourselves. The fifth topic, a seat at the lunch table, will be developed for elementary and middle school-aged girls, according to RollingStone.com.
"Solange Knowles' 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," a statement reads.
"At the beginning (of) 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. If we are to have a democracy in which all of us have a seat at the table, we know that these experiences should be central to the development of America's practices and policies."
