Beyoncé’s Lemonade album manifests a political prowess and #BlackGirlMagic that inspires many of us.

Maurice Dane Scott, a graduate of Saunders Trades and Technical High School in Yonkers, N.Y., decided to act on his inspiration by trading up traditional graduation photos for something more Queen Bey inspired.


In an interview with Time magazine, Scott said, “Beyoncé has been a huge inspiration in my life. To me, ‘Lemonade’ means diversity.” He went on to say, “That’s the kind of flexible and cultured person I want to be. I also love the poetry, the visuals and the political statements.”

Scott, who is now headed to Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology in Queens, N.Y., tweeted about his re-creation of the Lemonade album cover, which has received over 5,000 likes.
