University of Bey.

DID YOU KNOW that you can now take a college course titled “Politicizing Beyonce” at Rutger’s University? According to Rutgers, the course will “explore American race, gender and sexual politics.”

From Buzzfeed:

Kevin Allred, a doctoral student and lecturer in Rutgers’ Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, says, “This isn’t a course about Beyoncé’s political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama’s inauguration weekend.” He added that students will have readings from the black feminist canon, including the writings of bell hooks, Alice Walker, and even abolitionist Sojourner Truth.

Help me raise a glass to the college grads.
