Last year’s A Seat At The Table was the album Black America needed. It came at a time when we were overwhelmed with images of Black death and racist terror. It covered the range of Black experience from the everyday instances of racism to the larger more institutional instances that govern our lives. As such, it was fitting for Solange to be rewarded for her ability to translate so much into such a soothing and relatable album. Black Girls Rock stands as a testament to the ability of Black folks to find ways to love up on one another and enjoy each other in the face of opposition and terror which Solange spoke to in her acceptance speech. Solange also used the platform to uplift Black women and girls who feel they don’t always have it together and who sometimes have a hard time getting up in the morning. Watch below.
