This year’s Black Girls Rock illuminated every natural haired celebrity that graced the red carpet this year. Beauties such as Jill Scott, Janelle Monae, Traci Ellis Ross, Ava DuVernay, Debra Lee and many more gave us jaw dropping big and bold natural styles in connection with flawless makeup.
Black Girls Rock is an event where being your natural self is what’s in. With her eccentric style and electric sultry voice Janelle Monae said it best,
“It’s so necessary to have an event and show called “Black Girls Rock”.
We are usually the last to be recognized in this country. I am proud of who I am. If I had to pick being a woman and being black all over again, I would. We are so cool, diverse, and humble because of our past. Confident because of our DNA. We are dynamic. We are True leaders and nurturers of this Earth. We’re so diverse and continue to have compelling stories that uplift one another each day. Our hair is flexible and can do so much just like our brains. Our bodies come in many diff sizes and shapes. Whether or whether not we chose to be modest or giving with showing our baked skin, It’s our choice. We have more control than we know, our oppressors know that. I celebrate the diversity in women all around the world. When black women are celebrated we all thrive. We are one.
We do thrive indeed.
