Let’s be honest…it’s a rarity. As we celebrate Women’s History Month, it’s important to acknowledge the few but dynamic Black women in Hollywood. The following video brought tears to my eyes. From Queen Latifah to Mary J. Blige, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Kimberly Elise…I am just in awe at presence these women have. I feel as if I know them because their stories on the silver and TV screen have all touched me in some way.
Check out the video from Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood Awards Luncheon. Am I the only one that still sees Taraji Henson and thinks Baby Boy? My Auntie has come a long way and I feel like a proud niece! Y’all love how I claim celebrities as my relatives, right? Ha!
What I would have given to attend that event. Next year, y’all. Next year.
