One college campus is about to get in formation. Have you ever wanted to major in Beyoncé? Well, one lucky school is about to get very close. The University of Texas at San Antonio now officially offers a class all about Beyoncé’s Lemonade. You gotta start somewhere, right?
The class—titled “Black Women, Beyoncé, and Popular Culture”—has been developed by Professor Kinitra Brooks, who will also teach the course. According to the syllabus, “Lemonade is a meditation on contemporary black womanhood. The purpose of this class is to explore the theoretical, historical, and literary frameworks of black feminism, which feature prominently in Lemonade. We will use Lemonade as a starting point to examine the sociocultural issues that are most prominent in black womanhood through black feminist theory, literature, music, and film.”
And no, those in the Beyhive will not be given early registration. (*sniff*) All are welcome, as long as they’re ready to discuss the content. But Professor Brooks warns that the class won’t be easy. The topics covered in class aren’t to be taken lightly, and discussions will get intense. You have to be willing to discuss your thoughts and ideas and have them challenged by other students.
Shoutout to The University of Texas at San Antonio. When will other campuses get on board? Because when life gives you lemons…
