Created by celebrity DJ and women’s empowerment advocate Beverly Bond, Black Girls Rock honors the ground-breaking achievements of Black women who have fearlessly broken barriers in the areas of art, business, entertainment and community service.
“I’m honored to host the ‘BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Awards. I love the message and I love Beverly Bond and her vision. I was lucky to be honored in 2011. It is truly a highlight of my life. Now I’m back to be part of this amazing night to honor the strong and powerful Yara, Issa Rae, Roberta, Suzanne, Derrica and Natalie. Let’s make history together as we come together as women of brains, beauty and in support of each other,” said Henson.
