A Seat At The Table has inspired curators to create a syllabus exploring ideologies from the work. Women of color are encouraged to contribute.
The announcement was made through Saint Heron’s website, which states that the “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.”
“Women between the ages of 16-30 are now being asked to share their stories using texts, music, and visual art that speak to their personal experiences… 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,” the website states.
Among the women working on the syllabus is Wake Forest alum/journalist Melissa Harris-Perry, who serves as the Maya Angelou Presidential Chair at the University. Another curator includes writer/educator Candice Benbow, the mastermind behind the 2016 Lemonade syllabus in response to Beyonce’s visual album.

“At its spiritual core it is an ode to black women and their healing and sustenance… Solange turns the mirror back upon them, and crystallizes the kinship therein,” Pitchfork wrote about the album in a review.
Those interested in contributing can submit by 11:59 PM EST, January 31, 2017.
