Pinch News

The Human Rights Campaign’s HBCU program has released a syllabus inspired by Beyoncé’s 2022 Renaissanceper a detailed report by Billboard. Renaissance: A Queer Syllabus, was released late March and is described by Billboard as “a sprawling collection of academic articles, essays, films and other pieces of media rooted in Black queer and feminist studies and directly inspired by each track on Queen Bey’s Billboard 200-topping dance album”.

The syllabus revolves around six themes, spanning from “intersectionality and inclusivity” to “social justice and activism”, drawing inspiration from popular songs on the album for lesson content.

The course syllabus was created by Justin Calhoun, Leslie Hall, and Chauna Lawson, members of the Human Rights Campaign’s HBCU program. According to the report, the syllabus will be distributed to around 30 historically Black colleges and universities, such as Howard University, North Carolina A&T University, Prairie View A&M University, and Shaw University.

The Human Rights Campaign did not work with Beyoncé nor Parkwood Entertainment to make the syllabus but they describe putting the document together as a seamless process according to Hall.
