Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ Wins Peabody Award


It is beyond any doubt, a solid fact that Beyonce‘s Lemonade is certainly one of the most moving projects of our time, and it’s getting notable praise in all the best places. This year, the University of Georgia’s prestigeous Peabody Award praised the HBO-premiered visual album in the Entertainment Programming category, as a part of HBO Entertainment in collaboration with Parkwood Entertainment, acknowledging Beyonce’s fierce representation of the plight and celebration of black women:

‘“Lemonade” draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation. The audacity of its reach and fierceness of its vision challenges our cultural imagination, while crafting a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture.’

Lemonade won alongside the likes of Donald Glover’s Oscar-winning FX television series Atlanta. We couldn’t be more proud of Queen B’s fearless artistry and world-shifting contributions. Congratulations!
