Beyoncé closed out this year's Juneteenth (June 19) with a new song called "Black Parade."
It was a fitting way to mark the day, which celebrates progress and the end of slavery in America. In addition to the music, Bey is also showcasing a directory of Black-owned businesses and artists, while proceeds from the new song will benefit BeyGOOD's Black Business Impact Fund, which is administered by the National Urban League, to support Black-owned small businesses in need.
While it might seem like Beyoncé has been laying low this year, she's actually been quite active. Earlier this month, she delivered a virtual commencement speech for the class of 2020 and she has been vocal in support of the Black Lives Matter protests, even going as far as to write an open letter to Kentucky's Attorney General pleading for charges to be brought against the police officers who killed Breonna Taylor.
She has also been working with cities across the country to address Covid-19 with free drive-thru testing and other resources, in addition to helping her old church back in Houston take care of the community during the pandemic. And back in April, she appeared on the remix of Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage."
