On the sixth episode of the second season we see a scene portrayed with Beyoncé, a Texas native, at the mall with her family as she sees Selena and becomes star-struck.
“But I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity, and I just saw her and said ‘hello’ and kept it moving,” Beyonce revealed years ago in an interview. “Definitely, growing up in Texas, I heard her on the radio and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was singing, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”
“I think she is a legend and I admire her, and she was so talented. So, I’m very happy that—even though she didn’t know who I was. I’m still so excited that I got that opportunity”, Beyonce stated in an interview years you could see below.
Young Beyoncé is played by actress and singer Giovanna Bush, Nikki Crawford, who played Tina Knowles, and Kamorr Clark-McGeoy, who was a very quiet Young Solange.

To you it's 'no big deal' just a moment on the screen. To US it sends a strong mssg. It happens so often it's systemic. It's particularly distressing when they do it to pioneers like Nina, Beyonce & Celia who are celebrated because they were so successful while being Black.
