"People like, say, Beyoncé, for example, you know, they're not just providing an image for other black people, they're actually shaping the larger culture as well. I think that's the larger vision implicit in Locke, is that, not only will we reposition, and restate our beauty to ourselves, but then ultimately, in doing that, you will actually have an influence on the larger culture," said Jeffrey Stewart, the author of Pulitzer Prize-winning book "The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke."
