Here are a few things we learn about Solange’s i’m with her viewpoints:

She’s a black feminist just like her sister, Beyonce.

“I am a proud black feminist and womanist and I’m extremely proud of the work that’s being done. I’m a feminist who wants not only to hear the term intersectionality, but actually feel it, and see the evolution of what intersectional feminism can actually achieve.”

And she’s united with the whole “intersectional feminism” movement.

Intersectional feminism has been popping up everywhere especially amongst women of color. It basically  means that we as women understand our vast diversity, but we also understand our similarities. It is about identifying core themes that affect all of us and really uniting around them to protect our rights.

Also She is still explaining her album “A Seat At The Table.”

“I think that as women, and as black women in general, we’re always having to fight two times harder. And you know, even with my videos, I was so invested in the visual storytelling, of wanting to see black men and women in the way that I see them every day, which is powerful but graceful but also vulnerable and also regal and stately. And how we use style as a language, and our pageantry, and how we communicate.”

There’s no doubt that Solange has arrived. She has become the goddess of the Knowles family.
