Beyonce’s Mom Reveals Intimate Conversation About Celebrating Black Culture At Coachella

Beyonce’s goal is to celebrate and educate the masses about her culture, no matter the cost.

Lawson was concerned Beyonce’s Coachella 2018 set, which paid homage to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), would fall flat with the predominately white crowd.

“I told Beyonce that I was afraid that the predominately white audience at Coachella would be confused by all of the black culture and Black college culture because it was something that they might not get,” she wrote.

“Her brave response to me made me feel a bit selfish and ashamed,” continued Lawson. “She said ‘At this point in my life and my career I have a responsibility to do what’s best for the world and not what is most popular.”
