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).

IPL: Jason Roy's unbeaten 91 helps Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians
Roy was efficient in using his feet to meet the pitch of the ball, as well as using the depth of the crease while shifting back. Mumbai Indians had set themselves for a total around 240, but could only reach 194 because of a poor finish with the bat.

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.

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.
