The Black Girls Rock awards last night were incredible. So many talented and powerful black women in the public eye were recognized for their accomplishments, and so many dazzling performances were delivered. Tracee Ellis Ross hosted the night, and awards were given to Rihanna, Gladys Knight, Shonda Rhimes, Amandla Stenberg, and the three founders of Black Lives Matter, Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors.
There were especially standout performances from Brandy and Jazmine Sullivan.
