Black Panthers Shut Down the SB50

Celebrities are criticised for taking a neutral stance regarding political conflicts, and Beyonce is no stranger to the criticism. Labelled passive and a sell out by some of her black sisters, Beyonce decided to put an end to that. Instinctively by doing what she does best. Performing her powerful anthem Formation, a song charged with the message of black pride at the Super Bowl 50. She left spectators and the world speechless with a powerful and iconic dance routine in outfits dedicated to the black panther movement and the king and pop Michael Jackson.

She took a refreshing approach to address the recent controversy surrounding the black lives matter movement, referencing the black panther party which was formed in Oakland California in 1966, by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. The party was for Self-Defense, meaning black men had the write to carry and bare arms if felt threatened due to the racial hate and tension in America during this time.

NOTE: This was formed 2 years after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr which was in 1964
