From Destiny's Child to Lemonade, Homecoming, and The Gift, Beyonce Knowles-Carter has redefined global stardom, feminism, Black representation, and celebrity activism. This book brings together new work from sixteen international scholars to explore Beyonce's impact as an artist and public figure from the perspectives of critical race studies, gender and women's studies, queer and cultural studies, music, and fan studies. The authors explore Beyonce's musical persona as one that builds upon the lineages of Black female cool, Black southern culture, and Black feminist cultural production. They explore Beyonce's reception within and beyond North America, including how a range of performers-from YouTube gospel singers to Brazilian pop artists have drawn inspiration from her performances and image. The authors show how Beyonce's music is a source of healing and kinship for many fans, particularly Black women and queer communities of color. Combining cutting edge research, vivid examples, and accessible writing, this collection provides multiple lenses onto the significance of Beyonce in the United States and around the world.
