I’m literally glowing inside. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is exploring Beyoncé and black womanhood with “Lemonade Week”. Started by English professor James Arnett, the week begins from Monday to Thursday, the university will host daily events to discuss the topics explored on the visual album, such as the “lives, loves and pain of black women.” Well okay than! Homie saw a void and a demand from interested students and supplied that desire in good form. I’m impressed and also happy that people are starting to take notice. Recognition is key, representation is key, recognition is key, and again, representation is key.
I loved the Formation video ever since it dropped. She highlighted issues I could deeply relate to and people took notice. When a celebrity uses their platform to speak on social issues and gives it a face, I always applaud it. As I said before, recognition is key, representation is key and the more we get, the better it will be. Thank you Beyonce for “Lemonade”, it touched a lot of people and came like a crashing wave onto the souls of many. Bravo!
