During the iconic delivery, Queen B,  paid homage to a list of people and causes. The humble artist donned a costume that was inspired by the one that Michael Jackson wore back in 1993. The enlightened chanteuse also included a nod to the Black Panther Party. In October of this year, the Panthers will celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Choreographed beret-wearing dancers demonstrated their solidarity. With unity their powerful fists made a statement. Later in the routine, Beyoncé and her dancers emphatically spelled out “X.” The slain Civil Rights leader, Malcolm X, was murdered on Feb. 21, 1965. This month will mark the 51st anniversary of his assassination.

Tina Lawson, Bey’s mother, also snapped a photo with several dancers dressed as Black Panthers. These  passionate performers used to the spotlight to help bring more awareness to the death of Mario Woods. In December of 2015, Mr. Woods was killed at the hands of the San Francisco Police department.

Below, check out the performance and the Instagram pictures.
