“You can see it in everything she does, from her music that gives voice to black joy and black pain, to her activism that demands justice for black lives,” Obama said.
Thanking BET for “this beautiful honour”, Beyoncé replied: “I want to dedicate this award to all of my brothers out there, all of my sisters out there inspiring me, marching and fighting for change.
Your voices are being heard and you’re proving to our ancestors that their struggles were not in vain.
“Now we have one more thing we need to do to walk in our true power, and that is to vote,” she continued.
“I’m encouraging you to continue to take action, continue to change and dismantle a racist and unequal system.
