Black Girls Rock

| 84 Comments | No TrackBacks

Tonight (Nov.7) was our night ladies. BET partnered with Black Girls Rock to dedicate an entire award show to our fight, our struggle and our beauty (inside and out) donning the same name, Black Girls Rock. The show, which took place in the Bronx, Ny, awarded black women and black young ladies in the entertainment world, business world and those making strides in everyday life. It honestly felt great to see a show dedicated to us. I felt amazing to see all of the black women who have paved the way for many, like me, to do whatever it is that our hearts desire.

 

Black Girls Rock encourages young black girls to embrace the color of their skin, the texture of their hair and the shape of their bodies and love each and every last bit of it. Presenters and performers such as Nia Long, Jill Scott, Monica, Keyshia Cole, and Marsha Ambrosius set the tone for the night bringing words of wisdom, songs of encouragement and empowerment. Award winners such as Missy Elliot, Keke Palmer, Raven-Symone, Ruby Dee and Teresa Clarke reminded every black girl and woman in the audience and at home why Black Girls Rock.

Sometimes it may seem that there are so many hurdles in life holding us, black women, back. The road to success for us may even seem non-existent but this organization and the award show reassured us that yes, there will be hurdles in life and it will be tough but we can do it. I asked Facebook "Why do you think Black Girls Rock?" And I was moved by the responses:

So tell me, why do you think Black Girls Rock?
