DAPHNE A. BROOKS ON BEYONCÉ’S RENAISSANCE

Wed, Dec 14, 7 pm, $15

Fresh off being named the Album of the Year by Rolling Stone, join Yale Professor Daphne A. Brooks as she explores how Renaissance’s cutting-edge pop experimentation with Black feminist liberation principles speaks to our ever-present precarity. “Renaissance  is an irresistible invitation to head out into the thrilling, glorious and sensuous unknown, to fantasize and ‘levitate’ and move passionately alongside one another,” writes Brooks. “Beyoncé has unleashed a reclamation of the pleasure to be found in our own flesh. We are in the mix with her as each track reverberates with layers of lyrical, musical, and thematic call-and-response across the expanse of the album. Leaning again and again into the baptismal magic of the beat and the insistence on ‘looking for something that lives inside me,’ she offers up one escape strategy after another to resist and reject America’s habit of attempting to break minoritized peoples.”  This class is part of Roundtable by The 92nd Street Y, New York,  a new online learning platform.
