Beyonce's Lemonade Wins Peabody Award

It has been exactly a year since Beyonce released her critically acclaimed album "Lemonade". This ground-breaking album is still gaining recognition. The visual album which aired on HBO last year was awarded a Peabody award. The nominating jury states that: "Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation. The audacity of its reach and fierceness of its vision challenges our cultural imagination while crafting a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture." What a powerful statement found in the Peabody awards website. This is defitelny been a good year for Queen B.
