Beyonce’s New Short Film “Black Is King” Will Address Racism And Social Injustice
Grammy award-winning singer Beyonce is set to release a short-film tagged “Black Is King”. Centered around race, this film will address some political and social issues. It comes as a companion project to “The Lion King: The Gift Album” that was released in 2019.
According to reports, the film will be a visual work for her latest album which featured a host of African singers and entertainers. While many are sharing how much they are expecting to see the work, many others have applauded the singer for using her voice and platform to speak against social injustices.

Thank you @Beyonce. I’m sitting here in tears because you are so proud to be black. I appreciate you for not playing it “safe” but, reminding people who may have forgotten that we are strong. Our AFRICAN ANCESTORS made us that way and THIS is OUR Birthright. #blackisking ✊ https://t.co/fbsNCxt9N1
