Black Girls Rock!
Saturday, March 28, 2015, a bevy of talented, ambitious and inspiring brown women and girls came together for BET’s Black Girls Rock 2015 Awards Show. Black Girls Rock is a non-profit organization focused on empowering and mentoring you. This year’s honorees included Cicely Tyson, Ava DuVernay, Jada Pinkett Smith, Erykah Badu, Dr. Helene.
