The Lemonade Panel: Black Women, Beyoncé & Popular Culture


The release of the visual album Lemonade ushered in a new era of Beyoncé. More than a pop album, Lemonade elevated the stories, struggles, and history of Black women in American in a way that hadn't been previously done. 

The Lemonade panel will facilitate a discussion of Beyoncé's cultural importance, artistry, social/political commentary, and empowerment of women of color. The event will include conversation interwoven with viewings of music videos.


Whitney Manney, Fashion Designer
Julia Haile, Singer-Songwriter
Cecilia Belser-Patton, Co-Founder of KC CARE

While this conversation will intentionally center black women's voices and experiences, all are welcome to attend!
