Beyoncé’s visual album reimagines the themes of The Lion King to accompany today’s young queens and young kings on their personal journey in search of their crown. The film was in production for a year with a cast and crew representing diversity and inclusion. The travels of Black families over time are celebrated in a tale about the growth path of a young king through betrayal, love and his own identity. His ancestors guide him to his destiny and, with the teachings of his father and the guidance of his childhood love, he earns the virtues necessary to regain his home and throne. These timeless lessons are revealed and expressed through today’s Black voices rising in all their might. “Black Is King” is the affirmation of a great goal, with wonderful images that celebrate the resilience and culture of the Black people. The film highlights the beauty of tradition and Black excellence.
