Dear Class of 2020 is a virtual commencement celebration bringing together inspirational leaders and artists to celebrate graduates, their families, and their communities.
And today we chose Beyoncé’s celebrative video, where the artist touches so many delicate, interesting and still heavy problems for this society…worldwide.
“The entertainment business is still very sexist, is still very male dominated. And as a woman, I did not see enough female role models giving the opportunity to do what I knew I had to do”.
Beyoncé has been always fighting to let the world understand that there must be space for everyone at our tables, like she has made space for all diversities at her table (talking about her label and company).
“One fo the main purposes of my art for many years has been dedicated to showing the beauty of black people to the world”.
Bring out your special gift
There’s so much hope and positivity in Beyoncé’s speech: no one has to feel like they do not belong to this world. There’s enough space in this society for each one of us, and we must not fear to show our differences.
“If you are part of a group that’s called ‘Other’, a group that does not get the chance to be centre-staged, build your own stage and make them see you. Your queerness is beautiful! Your blackness is beautiful! Your compassion, your understanding, your fight for people who may be different from you, is beautiful. I hope you continue to go into the world and show them that you will never stop being your self!”
A very heart-touching 10 minutes speech that we suggest you take your time to watch it but above all to carefully listen to it. Those words, in these crazy and hard times, are a real cure for our hearts.
