Black Girls Rock had Twitter on FIRE!!! Everybody was talking about the great performances, Will Smith’s loving speech towards his beautiful wife of nearly 20 years, Jada Pinkett-Smith.
The ladies were loving how Fantasia was tearing the house down with her powerful voice and Michelle Obama repeating for a second and for emphasis, that “Black Girls Rock!”.
I couldn’t even keep up with all of the reaction and feedback on twitter. They are talking about it on the new Natural Hair Facebook Group, you basically can’t go anywhere without hearing about the Black Girls Rock award show gala.
Black Hair OMG was on top of it all, and we expect a lot of reviews to be coming out all this week from just about everybody with a voice.
But we want to hear what you had to say? Specifically, what was your favorite moment of the night?
What do you think about the controversy and backlash over the event? Do you think an event like this is needed?
Here is an interview with the creator of the Black Girls Rock Even, CEO Beverly Bond and two young women she’s mentoring, Sage Adams and Kathie Duperval. They join Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC to talk about the Black Girls Rock awards show on BET and why affirmation and representation are so crucial for black girls and women.
The interview above touched on some important points. It’s good to hear affirmation of your worth when you have been neglected and disregarded for so long. The ladies are not trying to slight anyone else, they just feel it’s important to encourage those who have been lacking it for so long as a group.
