“Black Girls Rock!” is an annual tv show that honors and recognizes black women in different fields, including entertainment, music, and entrepreneurship. This award show is said to empower black women all over the world. Black Girls Rock recognizes the excellence in black girls and women that do extraordinary things.
In the 2016 show, Rihanna won the “The ‘Rock Star’ Award,” Shonda Rhimes won the “Shot Caller Award,” Gladys Knight won the “Living Legendary Award,” Danai Gurria won the “Star Power Award,” Amanda Stenberg won the “Young, Gifted, and Black Award.” The final award was the “Community Change Agent Award,” and it was awarded to Patrisse Cullers, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi.
