Section Information for Fall 2020
In her visual album Lemonade, Beyoncé constructs a defiant black feminism that is historically, politically, and culturally positioned within the complex genealogy of black feminist thought. By situating Lemonade in the context of black feminist praxis, students are encouraged to explore the life, labor, unseen geographies, and theorizing of black women from the antebellum era to the twenty-first century. The course will engage the multiplicity of liberation strategies and aesthetic practices black women relied upon to live and survive in the United States. Through critical evaluation of historical documents, songs, poetry, documentaries, movies, literary texts, and visual culture the course will provide students with the analytical tools to examine how black women made lemonade out of lemons.
