The response to Bey's performance was one of unanimous awe, as she forever reinvented Coachella's "white people stage" as Vince Staples called it and also the color yellow.
Lawson on Monday, April 16 posted a quote from Orland-based attorney Alisa Adamson Profit, who praised Bey for her tribute to historically Black colleges and universities. (To that end, the singer has announced $100,000 scholarships to four such colleges, proving she really is the Queen).
Beyoncés performance at the Coachella festival in the Southern California desert on Saturday was billed as a homage to education and black American culture, featuring a marching band, performance art, choir and dance. This is the second year for a scholars program created by Beyoncé.
After making history as the first black woman to headline Coachella, Beyoncé has expanded the scholarship program she launched past year with new donations to four traditionally black universities. The disciplines will include literature, creative arts, African- American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science and engineering. Applicants will be selected from various majors and are required to maintain a 3.5 GPA or above. Winners will be announced this summer.
Universities such as Bethune-Cookman University in Florida, Tuskegee University in Alabama, Xavier University of Louisiana, and Wilberforce University in OH will receive $25,000 each. A $25,000 scholarship will be awarded to one student from each university for the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year. The superstar was due to perform a year ago but had to postpone because she was pregnant with her twins, Sir and Rumi.
