Award-winning singer, songwriter and businesswoman Beyonce talks black lives matter, sexism in the entertainment industry her success tips to the class of 2020

When the queen speaks, the whole world listens; and on Saturday, Beyonce addressed the US graduates in her powerful speech. But honestly, everyone could relate to what she shared, especially during the wake of police brutality and the death of George Floyd, which sparked global protest against racism. She said in part, “Congratulations to the class of 2020, you have arrived here in the middle of a global crisis, a racial pandemic and worldwide expression of outrage at the senseless killing of yet another unarmed black human being. And you still made it, we’re so proud of you.”

She added, “Many of the best creatives and business people, who although supremely qualified and talented, were turned down over and over as executives at major corporations because they were female or because of racial disparity. And I’ve been very proud to provide them with a place at my table. One of the main purposes of my art for many years has been dedicated to showing the beauty of Black people to the world, our history, our profundity and the value of black lives.”

To the young women, she said, “To the young women, our future leaders, know that you’re about to make the world turn. I see you. You are everything the world needs. Make those power moves. Be excellent. And to the young kings, lean into your vulnerability and redefine masculinity. Lead with heart. There are so many different ways to be brilliant. I believe you and every human being is born with a masterful gift. Don’t let the world make you feel that you have to look a certain way to be brilliant.”
