Beyoncé makes history at Coachella

She was supported by more than 150 performers on stage.

Two days after making history as the festival's first black female headliner with her HBCU-homaging performance, Bey has announced that she'll be donating a total of $100,000 to four historically black colleges and universities. Now, she's also giving some of these schools thousands to provide students with scholarships.

Her show was replete with a long list of references to America's historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

The more than 100 historically shameful USA schools and colleges were based before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when white-dominated associations of high education and learning could bar African American pupils.

This absolutely was the very first time a dark female headlined the two-weekend festival, one of the biggest US tunes parties of this year.

Other optical component companies also slid, with Lumentum Holdings Inc falling 8.9 percent and Finisar Corp dropping 4 percent. ZTE uses a number of USA suppliers, including Intel , Microsoft, Micron Technology and Qualcomm .

One victor from each school will receive $25K for the 2018-2019 academic year for study in various fields.

This year, Coachella was gracious enough to step aside and allow Beyoncé to bless us mere mortals with Beychella.

The singer established the program in 2017 to mark the one-year anniversary of her 2016 visual album, "Lemonade".

Last year, the 36-year-old singer established a merit scholarship plan to encourage ladies. The disciplines will include literature, creative arts, African- American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science and engineering. The energy-filled production put the spotlight on art and culture, mixing the ancient and the modern, which resonated masterfully through the marching band, performance art, choir and dance.
