dc.description.abstract <p>Intersectional theory is a framework that provides a context for the interrelated nature of race, class, and gender (Crenshaw, 1991). Johnson (2006) provides further context that society ranks subject positions as "dominate" and "subordinate." Identity is covered under the broad umbrella of social psychology of appearance/dress. Undergraduate students while often versed in contemporary verbiage about identity politics rarely understand the systemic function that has plagued the U.S. for centuries. During the 2016 – 2017 academic year two professors undertook a project to help students expand understanding of intersectional identity using an element of popular culture, Beyoncé's 2016 visual album Lemonade. Using this visual album as tool students engaged in discussion and writing to learn about intersectional identity.</p>
