Listen To Solange Speak On Prince And A Seat At The Table At A Yale Conference

For the keynote conversation at Yale’s weekend-long celebration of Prince and David Bowie.

Over the weekend, Solange was a featured speaker at Yale's "Blackstar Rising & The Purple Reign," a conference celebrating the lives and cultural legacies of David Bowie and Prince.

For the event's keynote conversation, Solange sat down with professor Daphne E. Brooks to reflect on A Seat at the Table, and by extension, her role in "carrying forward" Prince and David Bowie's legacy of avant-gardism "as urgent, necessary, multi-faceted, black feminist sonic activism."

In their conversation, Ms. Knowles and Ms. Brooks go deep on the album—about its role as protest music, about how it's been translated into visual and performance art, about anecdotes from its creation, and more. Listen above.
