9 Books About Beyoncé, Feminism, And Music To Read

Beyoncé has provided influence on so many topics: motherhood, intersectional feminism, police brutality and other violence against the Black community, women in the workplace, and the true value of music and art in an ever-changing cultural landscape.

New York Times editor Veronica Chambers has assembled an all-star lineup of writers to talk about the legacy of Beyoncé in her new anthology, Queen Bey. Once you’ve finished reading Veronica Chambers’s book, you might want to pad your to-be-read pile with some more books about music and Black feminism. I’ve compiled nine books below that will give you just that: more thoughts on Beyoncé, Black women’s influence on the cultural landscape, and women in pop music.

I’m not saying Beyoncé herself would have all of these on her shelf, but I’m pretty certain every Beyoncé fan should pick up one or two.

1. ‘The Meaning of Michelle’ by Various Authors (Edited by Veronica Chambers)

If you’re looking for another collection of writing about a black female icon, Chambers has you covered with her first anthology, all about former First Lady Michelle Obama. Read More.

2. ‘On The Come Up’ by Angie Thomas

Angie Thomas’s fictional take on the hurdles of breaking into the male-dominated music industry as a young woman will definitely appeal to fans of rebellious (and fiercely talented) musical women. Read More.

3. ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Beyoncé famously sampled part of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED Talk on feminism for her 2013 single “Flawless.” But if you haven’t read the entire text, you’re missing out. Read More.
