They say that when two or more gather together, the glow commences!
Well, maybe in more or less words--I'm paraphrasing of course LOL. You have to admit, though, that when black women come together, something magical is definitely in the air. The love, the support, the SLAY, the good vibes--they are all undeniable and beautiful to witness.
I'm STILL obsessed with this image from Alfree Woodard's Pre-Oscars Sistahs Soiree this year! Just in case you missed it, here it is!
So much spirit, humor, beauty and spunk in one image! I'm so proud to be a black woman!
Getting back on track, black Hollywood gathered for the 10th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills, California. The honorees included How to Get Away With Murder's Aja Naomi King (Shining Star Award), director/writer and Insecure's Issa Rae (Vanguard Award), musician and Hidden Figures' Janelle Monae (Breakthrough Awards) and activist and Black-ish's Yara Shahidi (Next Generation Award). Many congratulations to these ladies for being recognized for their immense talents and contributions and bringing unique stories and POVs to life onscreen!
I'm sure that the night was nothing less than beautiful, memorable and inspirational. From the images and videos floating around and spilling over onto social media, I almost felt like I was there....ALMOST! It would be so dope to be invited into these types of rooms, surrounded by the people that inspire me from afar and on a day-to-day basis. One day, man, one day...
The awards ceremony is set to air on March 5 on OWN, and I CANNOT WAIT!
Check out some of the amazing looks from the men and women that attended the night's festivities below!
