Melissa Harris-Perry is using her space in education to create a course syllabus surrounding Solange’s latest album “A Seat At The Table”.

 

At Wake Forest University, where Harris-Perry is a member of the faculty,  and she is rallying the help of black women across the physical and digital space to help curate content that should be covered throughout the course. Of the topics, Melissa hopes to find content that touches issues based on racism, gender and sexuality, and the importance of self care.
