The Aesthetics and Style of Race, Gender and Politics: Beyoncé’s Lemonade

Join us for a free screening of Beyoncé’s hour-long visual album, LEMONADE, followed by a panel of featuring four Cornell faculty women of color: Oneka LaBennett, Noliwe Rooks, Samantha Sheppard and Dehanza Rogers.

LEMONADE is a rapturous tour-de-force of the personal and the political with directorial work from Jonas Åkerlund, Kahlil Joseph, Melina Matsoukas, Dikayl Rimmasch, Mark Romanek, Todd Tourso, and Beyoncé herself, work that has drawn comparisons to Julie Dash’s 1991 masterpiece DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST as well as artist Pipilotti Rist’s installation Ever is Over All, among others.

The presentation is cosponsored with the Africana Studies & Research Center, the Feminist, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program and the American Studies Program.
