Last night was the airing of BET’s Black Girls Rock Awards and what an amazing night it was. With a room full of #BlackExcellence and #BlackGirlMagic, you could only expect a surplus of inspiration, excitement and encouragement.
As she was honored with the “Rockstar Celebrant” award, the beautiful and talented Solange Knowles made sure to give her dose of inspiration to the crowd as she aimed her speech to black girls and women, reminding them the importance of encouraging each other at all times.
Other honorees for the evening included Issa Rae, Yara Shahidi, Maxine Waters, Roberta Flack, Natalie and Derrica Wilson, and Suzanne Shank. For those who missed it, see Solange’s speech below.
