ESSENCE 10th Annual Black Women In Hollywood Awards

ESSENCE magazine held their 10th annual Black Women In Hollywood Awards on Thursday (Feb 23) and it was absolutely magical.

The 2017 honorees were “How to Get Away with Murder” star Aja Naomi King (Rising Star Award), “Insecure” star Issa Rae (Vanguard Award), Hidden Figures star Janelle Monáe (Breakthrough Award), and “Black-ish” star Yara Shahidi (Generation Next Award).

The Black Women In Hollywood Awards are my most favorite because it’s so beautiful to see all of these talented women of color celebrating and uplifting each other.

To say everyone looked stunning would be a huge understatement! See the gorgeous photos below.
