In order to celebrate Juneteenth and Black-owned businesses, Beyoncé has just dropped her new song, Black Parade.

What is Juneteenth?

Since George Floyd’s murder and protests to end racism, people have seriously started talking and understanding about this culture. Among other things, the holiday of Juneteenth has started gaining people’s attention. While many were not aware of this day, it is one of the most important days in history and for Black Lives Matter. Juneteenth, also called Emancipation Day, is celebrated on the 19th of June. It is a holiday to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States. While the original emancipation proclamation was issued in 1863, it wasn’t until 1865 that the African Americans of Texas got the news. Immediately after the news, they started celebrating by praying, dancing, and singing. The very next day, it became an official holiday in Texas and started spreading all over the country. However, celebrities like Beyoncé, Usher, Taylor Swift, and Tom Hanks are urging to declare it a national holiday.

In order to celebrate this historical holiday, Beyoncé released her song, Black Parade.

To celebrate Juneteenth, Beyoncé dropped her new single, Black Parade. In an Instagram post, the singer announced her support for Black-owned businesses. Beyoncé wrote:

“Black Parade celebrates you, your voice and your joy and will benefit Black-owned small businesses. Happy Juneteenth Weekend! I hope we continue to share joy and celebrate each other, even in the midst of struggle. Please continue to remember our beauty, strength and power.”

Furthermore, Beyoncé urged her fans to go to her website, BeyGOOD Black Business Impact Fund. It features a list of Black-owned businesses from industries like beauty, art, restaurants, and bars. According to the singer:

“The fund will be administered by the National Urban League to support Black-owned small businesses in need.”

On her website, she wrote:

“Being Black is your activism. Black excellence is a form of protest. Black joy is your right.”

With the release of Black Parade, she has once again proved that she is a queen in true terms.
