Beyoncé

Earlier this year, Rutgers University announced that it will be bringing the entertainer’s work and career to the classroom with a course called “Politicizing Beyoncé.”

“This isn’t a course about Beyoncé’s political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama’s inauguration weekend,” class teacher Kevin Allred said, according to Rutgers Today.

The course will compare the singer’s music portfolio with important works from the black feminist movement, including writings of Alice Walker and Sojourner Truth.

“It’s important to shift students away from simply being consumers of media toward thinking more critically about what they’re engaging on a regular basis,” Allred said.
