Solo, whose album A Seat At The Table reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, is no stranger to using her platform to shed light on racial and social issues affecting the black community. Her new body of of work addresses how the country draws inspiration from black culture, but doesn’t necessarily value black life.  Speak!

“Community and conversation are really at the core of my album,” Solange shared with the audience.
