2016 was full of artists using their talent, passions and influence to speak on issues impacting Black and Brown communities. Queen Beyonce recently interviewed her sister, Queen Solange, to discuss the writing process, emotional implications, and real-life stories of Solange’s latest album, A Seat at the Table.
Here’s one of our favorite quotes:
“Because the album really feels like storytelling for us all and our family and our lineage. And having mom and dad speak on the album, it felt right that, as a family, this closed the chapter of our stories. And my friends’ stories—every day, we’re texting about some of the micro-aggressions we experience, and that voice can be heard on the record, too. The inspiration for this record came from all of our voices as a collective, and wanting to look at it and explore it. I’m so happy I got to take my time in that process. And the end result feels really rewarding.”
