Juneteenth was filled with many people celebrating black culture as everyone celebrated the emancipation of the last enslaved African Americans. It was a day filled with empowerment as many people on social media and throughout the world celebrated their blackness.
As the holiday was coming to an end, Beyoncé made a surprise release for her fans.
She dropped her latest song “Black Parade,” which is also in conjunction with a new initiative she shared with fans, which is to help support small black-owned businesses.
She first released a short snippet of the song’s instrumental as she encouraged fans to visit her website to learn more about the black parade.
She said, “Happy Juneteenth. Being black is your activism. Black excellence is a form of protest. Black joy is your right.” Beyoncé continued to say that “Black Parade,” benefits her organization, BeyGood’s Black Business Impact Fund, which is being orchestrated by the National Urban Leauge to support black-owned small businesses in need.
Along with the announcement, there is a directory of black-owned businesses in multiple industries. The directory highlights businesses in art and design, fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and many other industries.
Shortly after Beyoncé dropped the full “Black Parade,” single.
As we previously reported, many major corporations have now made the decision to recognize Juneteenth as a company holiday, and even some states, such as New York is also recognizing the holiday as a holiday for all state employees.
