You never know how far reaching your dream will be once actualized. Black Girls Rock, “since 2006 has been dedicated to the healthy development of young women and girls.” The Black Entertainment Television Network (BET) was able to bring the mission of Black Girls Rock to the forefront by adopting a show of the same moniker. As each year passes the show gets even greater. This year’s show will be no different, considering the fact host, Taraji P. Henson, is the epitome of Black Girls Rock.
There aren’t enough words to describe how I feel about BET’s Black Girls Rock Award show. The Black Girls Rock mantra is one that I proudly proclaim because we most definitely rock! Too often, haters try to blow sistah’s lights out, but we must stand our ground and continue walking in our greatness. It is more important now, more than ever to go ham with your goals, dreams, and aspirations. Here are three good reasons why
1. Black Women are the most educated group in the U.S. (National Center for Education Statistics)
2. Black Women are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in America (Fortune, Inc.)
3. Research shows black women score higher on self-esteem than women of other races and ethnicity (50 States of Women Series – Glamour and L’Oreal)
It appears as though we have heard the cries of Beyonce’ Knowles-Carter and are truly getting in formation. From the looks of it, the ladies slayed on the red carpet this year, take a peek. I hope you tune in, I plan on it! The Black Girls Rock Award show airs Tuesday, August 22nd at 8pm/7C on the BET Network. If you can’t wait until then, catch some tea here
