Beyoncé Wins Peabody Award For Lemonade

Beyoncé has been honored with a prestigious Peabody Award for her HBO visual album “Lemonade.” 

The Peabody Awards were once known as the "Pulitzer Prizes for Radio," and they recognize excellence in television, radio and digital broadcasting.

Beyoncé is among seven honorees in the Entertainment category to be named to be part of the Peabody Awards' inaugural Peabody 30. 

The special award honors programming in news, radio/podcast, web and public service.

Peabody organizers released a statement that said, "Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation."

Rashida Jones will host the 76th annual Peabody Awards in New York City on May 20th. 

The ceremony will air on June 2nd on PBS and Fusion.
