This year Beyoncé has been making her stance on police brutality well-known. At her recent concert in Glascow, Beyoncé performed a powerful acapella version of Freedom dedicated to Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. The performance was also for countless Black people who lost their lives due to the color of their skin.
