Beyonce
Here's a thoughtful commentary by Gloria Ladson-Billings on Beyonce, with a link to the SNL skit we referenced in class... 
"I would never look to Beyonc√© to lead a movement or educate my children. However, the fact that she has taken up a current, relevant topic in her latest song makes me hopeful that our art is starting to be about more than drinking vodka, getting high, and having sex with any and everybody. When a major star like Queen Bey takes on a serious topic that impacts our community, I appreciate it — and for that I blame Kendrick Lamar!"
