Queen Bey: A Celebration of the Power and Creativity of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter

You don't need to be in the Beyhive to appreciate Queen Bey...Voices including culture critic Luvvie Ajayi and actress and producer Lena Waithe give us a fresh take on Beyoncé, who's arguably the biggest pop star of our time. --Essence
Beyoncé. Her name conjures more than music, it has come to be synonymous with beauty, glamour, power, creativity, love, and romance. Her performances are legendary, her album releases events. She is not even forty but she has already rewritten the Beyoncé playbook more than half a dozen times. She is consistently provocative, political and surprising. As a solo artist, she has sold more than 100 million records. She has won 22 Grammys and is the most-nominated woman artist in the history of Grammy awards. Her 2018 performance at Coachella wowed the world. The New York Times wrote: There's not likely to be a more meaningful, absorbing, forceful and radical performance by an American musician this year or any year soon. Artist, business woman, mother, daughter, sister, wife, black feminist, Queen Bey is endlessly fascinating.
