Here's How These Young Women Hope to Use Solange Knowles' Album for Education

Inspired by Solange Knowles' album "A Seat at the Table" and the unruly transition into a new presidency, a group of women from Wake Forest University have curated "A Seat at the Table Syllabus."

This syllabus encourages young women of color between the ages of 16 and 30 "to have a seat at the table."

As part of the creation process, the curators asked these women to send in submissions to help enrich the syllabus. Ideas for contributions include anything from topics about resisting racism and understanding gender and sexuality to the roles of relationships and nurturing ourselves.

With the goal of continuing the conversation that Knowles opened up so artistically, she asks her listeners: "If we are to have a democracy in which all of us have a seat at the table," the call to action reads, "We know that these experiences should be central to the development of America's practices and policies."

Submissions close at 11:59pm EST on January 31, 2017. Will you contribute?
