On November 7, 2010 BET will Be launching its first Annual Black Girls Rock Award Show (BGR). BGR will recognize the achievements of black women in music, acting and civil rights highlighting the accomplishments of exceptional women of color who have made outstanding contributions in their careers, and who stand as inspirational and positive role models in their communities.
BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc. seeks to build the self-esteem and self-worth of young women of color by changing their outlook on life, broadening their horizons, and helping them to empower themselves. So its only fitting that they team up with Debrah Lee and the staff of BET. The host of this event is the ever so lovely Ms Nia Long. Nia Long has been on the scene dating back to 1986 starring along side Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ice Cube in "Boyz in the Hood" and with her sexy style and sassy ways I'm sure she will be a great host.
This years BGR will be awarding Missy Elliott with the visionary award, Keke Palmer with Who's got Next, Raven Symone withYoung Gifted and Black, Ruby Dee with the Living Legend and the list goes on. This will
definitley be a show not to miss. Performers include Keyshia Cole, Kelly Price, Fantasia, Monica, Ledisi, Keri Hilson and many more.
