Solange Knowles is asking fans for help to create a syllabus for a new Wake Forest University college course inspired by her A Seat At The Table album, reports Billboard.

From Billboard:

Knowles is seeking help from women aged 16-30 to craft a syllabus through various creative mediums, including texts, music and art. The A Seat at the Table-inspired syllabus will tackle five themes, including Resisting Racism, Understanding Gender and Sexuality, The Role of Relationships, Nurturing Ourselves and “A Seat at the Lunch Table.”

“Solange Knowles’s 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,” reads the Seatsyllabus website.

According to Knowles’ site Saint Heron, writer Melissa Harris-Perry, Wake Forest students and scholars birthed the idea for the syllabus.

The project will accept submissions until Jan. 31, reports Paper Magazine.
