In 2018 Coachella, Beyoncé became the first black woman to headline this festival. And that was a big deal, so the movie will be related to black history as well.
Below is a picture of Queen B performing at the Empire Polo Field on April 14, 2018, in Indio, California.
According to ENEWS! the reason that the documentary was named homecoming is probably that Beyonce launched a program called Homecoming, which created scholarships at four Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé, will be “interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, [the movie] traces the emotional road from creative concept to a cultural movement.”
The trailer begins with a voiceover from the literary icon Maya Angelou. In it, Dr. Angelou says: “What I really want to do is be a representative of my race, of the human race. I have a chance to show how kind we can be, how intelligent and generous we can be. I have a chance to teach and to love and to laugh.”
Homecoming airs on April 17. To see the trailer of Homecoming, click here.
