This is the second year of one of the most exciting awards ceremony’s of the year for women of colour, of course, I’m talking about BET’s Black Girls Rock awards show. This is a non-profit youth empowerment and mentoring organization. Black Girls Rock is dedicated to honouring exceptional women of colour around the world who serve as inspirational and positive role models (right up our street). There were so many beautiful ladies who hit the red carpet and of course we got some of the pics below on who wore what. This year, the show will honour political activist and scholar Angela Davis, gospel singer Shirley Caesar, Academy Award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson, WNBA president Laurel J. Richie, actress Tatyana Ali and directors of the Rebecca Project For Human Rights Imani Walker and Malika Saada Saar. The amazing performers on the night were Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Melanie Fiona, Mary Mary, Elle Varner and Shirley Caesar. So it’s a star studded event. This awards ceremony will be airing on BET so keep an eye out for that. Also we have a video below of the gorgeous actress Taraji P Henson.
Which Black girl do you think rocks?
