Beyoncé shut down the BET awards with her commanding performance, Freedom, featuring Kendrick Lamar. Freedom is a song which calls out to shackled souls while boldly and unapologetically declaring-now is the time to break free of the shackles which have so easily beset us.
Although the performance was very entertaining, the power lies within the spoken words. “I break chains all by myself; won’t let my freedom rot in hell. Hey! I’ma keep running cause a winner don’t quit on themselves.”(Beyoncé-Freedom) Can we look past the glimmer and fancy lights and pierce into the truth of our current conditions?
