This past weekend, Paradise Theater in the Bronx played host to the 5th Annual Black Girls Rock Awards hosted by Nia Long. The Awards Show and Organization was created by DJ Beverly Bond as a way to combat Negative images of African American Women in the media as well as serve as a mentor program for young girls.
Honorees of the night included Actress/Media Mogul Raven Symone, Keke Palmer, Missy Elliot, Iyanla Vanzant & Legendary Actress Ruby Dee with amazing performances from Jill Scott, Monica, Fantasia, Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, Marsha Ambriusos and more.
Black Girls Rock! will air on BET on November 7th and I must say, this is one of those events you truly do not want to miss. With all the negative stereotypes and images of black women in the media, this was truly an inspiring celebration of the women who deserve to be recognized. The event made me want to “do better, grind harder, and hustler smarter”.
