"Queen Bey," a new anthology about Beyoncé, lays bare just how hard it is to define her: she is a visual artist, a singer, a rapper, an activist, a social media influencer, a woman, a mother. In this segment we'll explore Beyoncé's creative force: how she has managed to transcend genre and make so many people feel seen while coming into her artistic self. Tell us: What effect has Beyoncé had on you? What is the secret to her genius?

Guests:

Veronica Chambers, editor, "Queen Bey: A Celebration of the Power of Creativity of Beyoncé Knowles Carter"

Michael Eric Dyson, professor of sociology, Georgetown University

Robin Boylorn, associate professor of interpersonal and intercultural communication, University of Alabama
