*Welcome to your weekly dose of black news*
*By Taryn Finley*

*It's a good week, y'all. Beyoncé has blessed us yet again
<https://news.huffingtonpost.com/t/t-l-okkjrz-ntkuiihtd-j/>. *

Her Beychella documentary and ode to HBCUs, "Homecoming," is finally out on
Netflix. And if you haven't seen it yet, you're missing out big time. She
gets deep and goes where we've never seen her before, getting candid about
her issues delivering the twins
<https://news.huffingtonpost.com/t/t-l-okkjrz-ntkuiihtd-t/> and the
difficulties of being disciplined enough to see her dream performance
through. And of course, she makes sure HBCUs are front and center
<https://news.huffingtonpost.com/t/t-l-okkjrz-ntkuiihtd-i/> of the doc. (I
wrote about this last year after witnessing Beychella in person!) She
followed up with a surprised 40-track live album from Coachella, finishing
with a cover to "Before I Let Go
<https://news.huffingtonpost.com/t/t-l-okkjrz-ntkuiihtd-d/>." **chef's

So many gifts! 💛

Forever First Lady Michelle Obama sent a message for Beyoncé, appropriately
starting her message off with "Hey queen
<https://news.huffingtonpost.com/t/t-l-okkjrz-ntkuiihtd-h/>!" Don't you
love when queens acknowledge queens?

In less fortunate news, "Insecure" won't be returning until 2020 (boooo!
<https://news.huffingtonpost.com/t/t-l-okkjrz-ntkuiihtd-k/>) BUT, Ava
DuVernay is bringing an important story to light. The director is
releasing "When They See Us
<https://news.huffingtonpost.com/t/t-l-okkjrz-ntkuiihtd-u/>," a four-part
series that looks at the five black and Latino teens who were falsely
accused of raping a white woman 30 years ago today, also known as the
Central Park Five. Check out the trailer

Also, the Mueller Report is out and ya girl Sarah Huckabee Sanders is out
here lying <https://news.huffingtonpost.com/t/t-l-okkjrz-ntkuiihtd-b/>,
y'all! Who knew???? 😒

Let me turn Beyoncé back on before #they disrupt my peace. Have a good
weekend, y'all!
