It’s no secret that Hip-Hop is becoming a huge entity when it comes to education nowadays. In this case college courses are being offered on the subject. Some of our favorites from the legendary Bun B has taken the title as Professor Trill during his teaching at Rice University for “Religious Studies 331: Religion and Hip-Hop Culture” in celebration of Black History Month. Countless others have also spoke at colleges.
This time Beyonce is taking a turn. No, she’s not going back for her Bachelor’s and no she’s not teaching either. But Mrs. Carter will actually be the subject of Rutgers University course entitled, “Feminist Perspectives: Politicizing Beyonce”. The course will be an exploration of race and gender shown throughout her videos and music overall. Beyonce 101 features studies on her lyrics and will also include the writings of bell hooks, Alice Walker, and even abolitionist Sojourner Truth, according to the university’s newspaper. This seems to be right up Yonce’s alley with talks of feminism more than ever.
