It’s Black Girls Rock! time again. We know we rock all the time, but we get to show the world just how much we do on November 4 when the annual BET special airs on television. Taping for the show will take place next Saturday, October 13, in the Bronx and Tracee Ellis Ross and Regina King are returning as hosts again to honor the following ladies with these awards:
Dionne Warwick: Living Legend honor
Alicia Keys: Rock Star award
Kerry Washington: Star Power award
Essence founder Susan L. Taylor and Somali activist Dr. Hawa Abdi will also be honored. Shout out to DJ Beverly Bond for choosing another amazing group of black women to recognize!
