You better call Becky with the good hair and get her in this class to take notes!
Although it's always been my belief that the lyrics to "Flawless" should be required reading and Lemonade should be required viewing for anyone with a pulse, students at UT San Antonio will have the opportunity this fall to enroll in a class called "Black Women, Beyoncé & Popular Culture." Lemonade is a visual masterpiece—a provocative portrayal of the scarcely celebrated black woman, making it perfectly suited for a college classroom.
Although the album will be at the forefront of the class' conversation, professor Kinitra D. Brooks plans on integrating multiple black feminist ideals into the discussion. In the height of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, the class will also call attention to racial tensions in the United States. While the class sounds incredibly captivating, it is also bound to be challenging. "Studying race, gender, class and pop culture theory is incredibly fun... and incredibly hard," Brooks tells Mic.
This isn't the first time Beyonce has been used as a tool to educate the youth, The University of Texas Austin also offered a course on Beyonce called "Beyoncé Feminism, Rihanna Womanism" back in spring 2015.
UTSA students better get in formation and right to registration.
**No word yet on if the course is classified as religious study.
