If Black is King then Black business is Queen. Beyoncé has once again put her money where her heart is. The superstar intends to give an additional $1 million in assistance, for Black-owned businesses suffering due to the global pandemic.
The Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund has already received a donation from the Queen R&B sensation. This organization is an initiative working with NAACP and BeyGOOD, Beyoncé‘s own foundation. Initially, they granted donations of $10,000 to 20 recipients cross Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, Houston, and Minneapolis.
Although done in secrecy, Bey’s efforts towards Black causes have been unsparing. For example, the revenue from “Savage (Remix)” with Megan Thee Stallion funded the work of a Houston non profit. Mental health organisation have also received a total 6 million dollars to foster wellness.
Beyoncé also partnered with her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, to initiate the #IDIDMYPART for mobile testing and the provision of masks, gloves, testing kits, along with other supplies to local Houston residents. Over the last year, Beyoncé has spoken out on racial oppression against Black Americans— being commended for acts of activism like her touching letter to the U.S. Attorney General Daniel Cameron insisting that justice be had for Breonna Taylor.
