In typical Beyoncé fashion, Kevin would like to offer the first chapter of his still forthcoming Politicizing Beyoncé book here on his own site, by surprise. The 1st of 13 proposed chapters overall, it provides an introduction to the book, connecting Beyoncé to Sojourner Truth, Melissa Harris-Perry, Alice Walker, and more via analysis of Beyoncé's "I Was Here," "Diva," and "Grown Woman." While it's free to read and download, Kevin would GREATLY appreciate any and all donations (no matter how small; small donations add up and can be life saving!) if you enjoy the content: cash.me/$kevinallred. (And please feel free to share!)
(Note: Content subject to change before final publication. Please excuse any typos as this is still a draft version of the work.)
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
