Abstract

This research is entitled Beyonce's Social Criticism Towards Violence On Black People As Seen In Beyonce’s Album “Lemonade”. This study has two research objectives: the first is the description of social criticism for Black people, and the second is Beyonce's social criticism dealing with violence against Black people as seen on the album "Lemonade". The researcher uses descriptive qualitative method by hearing the music several times from the album as the main data of this study. The secondary data are from books, journals, articles, theses, and internet to support this research. The researcher applies the data that have been obtained by using three theories, the theory of social critics and the theory of racism along with theory of popular culture to analyze the social criticism Beyonce in the album "Lemonade". As a result of this study, the researcher concludes that Beyonce seeks to sensitize and motivate Black people not to be discouraged by what they are experiencing at the moment. Through his songs and video clips Beyonce strongly criticized the polices brutality in America against Black people who were always considered wrong. Beyonce also hopes that later polices, brutality can be reduced or even no longer exists. The name of the Beyonce album "Lemonade" teaches that from a lemon that is very acidic, when processed, it will become fresh lemonade and is very desirable for everyone.
