Beyoncé received the BET Humanitarian Award on Sunday.
Read Beyoncé’s full BET Awards acceptance speech below:
Thank you so much for this beautiful honor. 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. I’m encouraging you to continue to take action. Continue to change and dismantle a racist and unequal system. We have to continue to do this together. Continue to fight for each other and lift each other up, because there are people banking on us staying at home during the local elections and primaries happening in states across the country.
We have to vote like our life depends on it, because it does. So please continue to be the change you want to see.
Thank you everyone who took the time to speak in that beautiful presentation, and thank you, BET, for this honor. It means so much to me, especially coming from y’all. I love you deep. God bless you, and good night.
