Valdosta State University Offers College Course Based on Beyoncé's 'Lemonade'

Mar 6, 2019

Many people will pay for Beyoncé concert tickets, but what about paying for a Beyoncé class for credit?

A group of college students at Valdosta State University is studying the work of "Queen Bey" this semester. The focus is on "Lemonade," the mega-star's sixth studio album accompanied by a visual album on HBO.

Caterina Orr is adjunct instructor of African-American studies at Valdosta State. She spoke with "On Second Thought" host Virginia Prescott about the course that kicked off this semester.


The course is called AFAM 3600 E: Black Women in Modern America, and it also explores black identity, feminism, marital infidelity, sisterhood and faith. It also looks at how black women are portrayed in mainstream culture.
