Earlier this year, students at Wake Forest University fashioned a syllabus from A Seat at the Table, and now Tate has asked Solange to bless its current exhibit Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power with her brand of black girl magic.

Solange’s piece Seventy States pulls inspiration from assemblage artist Betye Saar, using her Grammy winning track “Cranes in the Sky” as an anchor for her graphically structured poem and images.
