- A new exhibit highlighting works from the Lemonade Syllabus is currently on display in the 2nd Floor Silent Study Space of the Boatwright Memorial Library. Created in response to the April 23, 2016 release of Beyoncé's 6th solo album, the #LemonadeSyllabus was crafted by primarily black women to further investigate and appreciate the black feminist and womanist themes throughout the artist's visual album and the ongoing struggle for black liberation encapsulated in recent years by the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Bringing together over 200 resources ranging from fiction to film to self-care guides, the Lemonade Syllabus is an ongoing project in centering and elevating the voices and experiences of black women in the United States and around the world.
