The Triumphant Return of Black Girls Rock! Awards

After a five-year hiatus, the Black Girls Rock! Awards are making a triumphant return to our TV screens this fall, now airing on Lifetime instead of its original home, BET. This exhilarating event has a rich history of honoring the contributions of trailblazers, entertainers, icons, community activists, pioneers, business moguls, thought leaders, and rising stars.

For over 13 years, Black Girls Rock! has celebrated remarkable women such as MC Lyte, Missy Elliott, Erykah Badu, Pam Grier, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Taraji P. Henson, Alicia Keys, Cicely Tyson, Solange, Issa Rae, Janet Jackson, Angela Bassett, Regina King, Ciara, and H.E.R. As BGR founder Beverly Bond stated in a recent Instagram announcement, “I created Black Girls Rock! because I recognized that the condition of Black girls could only change when we are the authors of our own stories.”

“For nearly two decades, Black Girls Rock! has been a platform to celebrate and amplify the voices of Black women who are icons, innovators, and change-makers,” Bond continued. This year’s event returns in collaboration with Bond and Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens. “Atlanta’s vibrant cultural heritage provides the ideal backdrop for our celebration,” Bond noted in a press release, emphasizing that “Atlanta represents a critical juncture for our brand.”

Mayor Dickens added, “We are thrilled that Atlanta has been selected as the host city for the 2024 Black Girls Rock! Awards. We know that Atlanta is the city that influences everything and the perfect place to host such a historic and influential event.”
