Why Black Girls (will) Always Rock!
We are beautiful, smart, talented, fashionable, fearless, proud, humble, resilient, crazy and real.
The show was perfectly hosted by actors Regina King and Tracee Ellis Ross; performers were selected to perfection from Erykah Badu, Melanie Fiona, Elle Varner Jill Scott, Estelle, Mary Mary, Mary J. Blige and Shirley Caeser.
Loved the vignette with the ORIGINAL Black Girls still Rockin’ – Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle and Anita Baker with the message, “Stay the course and you will come into your own.”
Thank you Ruby Bridges for being a living legend; and, Imani Walker for all your courage and passion.
Here are some #blackgirlsrock nuggets to get you through the moments:
Taraji P. Henson – “We are always an after-thought but don’t have to be”
Lauriel J. Richie, Pres. Of WNBA – “Stand tall, celebrate diversity”
Angela Davis – “Stay encouraged and empowered young women of color”
Jill Scott- “I’m the original”
Shirley Caeser – “I’m (still) Rocking!”
My babies are rocking to this amazing show with me – what a great way to celebrate the #weekend.
