Melissa Harris Perry to create course inspired by ‘A Seat at the Table’

Melissa Harris-Perry wants to develop a college course at Wake Forest University inspired by Solange’s September release, A Seat at the Table.

The course would cover such topics as racism, gender, sexuality, self-care, resistance and others.

“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,” said a statement on the website.

Millenial women of color are invited to contribute text, music and visual art as well as experiences to seatsyllabus.com until Jan. 31, 2017, at which point submissions will be closed.
