On September 9, #blackgirlmagic will be in full effect, and then some.
BET will host its Black Girls Rock awards ceremony and this year Mary J. Blige, Lena Waithe, Judith Jamison, and Naomi Campbell will all be honored. The show will be hosted by none other than Queen Latifah.
“Each year I’m humbled to gather and celebrate Black women’s excellence, intelligence and savoir-faire. This year we are honoring women who are the Queens of their respective industries and celebrating the memory of our forever Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, who left us with classics and an example of how to take on life with resilience and grace,” Black Girls Rock founder Beverly Bond said. “I am grateful to BET for helping to elevate the Black Girls Rock mission and for being our partners in exalting the royalty of Black women and girls.”
