Beyoncé's Black History Month Tribute Has The Internet's Full Attention

Of course, Mrs. Carter would stop this exhausting month from withering away.

Published February 7, 2019

Between the exhausting need to continually explain why blackface is a travesty, ICE actively destroying lives, white actors, politicians and their allies being problematic, R. Kelly still being a free man, and a host of other problems we’ve faced since 2019 kicked off, this year needs a reboot. Being, undeniably, one of our modern epitomes of Black History, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is here to reel us back in and remind us why Black History Month is something that needs to celebrated, by us.

  1. Let’s not forget that two years ago, she kicked off the month by announcing her pregnancy…

    Not to mention, she dropped the certified black, female anthology, Lemonade, Bey owned the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and resuscitated the Caucasian playground known as Coachella & turned it into a black AF experience dubbed Beychella. This year, the Third Ward legend blessed her coveted BeyHive with a surprise photo collage showcasing her favorites from the Black community, entitled "We Good."

  2. Immediately, we all scurried to find our faces amongst the crowd, whether we did anything or not

    Those hand-picked few who did make the cut are writers, educators, activists, photographers, authors, entrepreneurs, doctors, fellow artists, poets, historical figures (living and deceased), and influencers within their respective fields. Among Bey’s faves are Emmy Award-winning Lena Waithe, New York Times bestselling author, Angie Thomas, rising phenoms, Marsai Martin, Mari Copeny, and Marley Dias, alongside famed activists, Johnetta ElzieDeray McKesson and Tarana Burke.

  3. Whether you made the list this year or not, this person summed all of our feels perfectly.
  4. Peep the beautiful homage below. Just remember if Bey say 'we good,' then we are.
