Okay ladies, let’s get in formation, or at least get on the class roster, because The University of Texas at San Antonio is offering a class solely surrounding Beyoncé’s visual album, Lemonade.
If I ever had the pleasure of taking a college course all about Beyoncé, I can guarantee you that I, along with five of my closest friends, would sit in the front row every day, and never be late. It would definitely be a GPA booster because I would actually pay attention. According to Cosmopolitan, the university will be offering a course exploring Lemonade as a “meditation on contemporary Black womanhood” and feminism.
UM, SIGN ME UP PLEASE. Sounds like you get to sit and watch Lemonade videos every single day and then talk about how men are disgusting pigs, and then you leave feeling empowered. So the entire course is basically just my typical Wednesday afternoon.
The course description says, “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.”
Rumor has it that by the end of the term the students will have deciphered who Becky with the good hair is. So, Lemonade is now a part of our higher education system, but lost an Emmy to Grease: Live! Just let that sink in..
