Sheryl Lee Ralph, Gina Prince-Bythewood, & Danielle Deadwyler Amongst Essence Black Girls in Hollywood Honorees


Because the shameful  all-white BAFTA winners record continues to make waves, Essence is spotlighting girls of shade “making their plain mark in movie and tv and forging ahead their very own definition of what it means to be a Black girl in Hollywood.” Now in its sixteenth version, the Black Girls in Hollywood awards luncheon is ready to honor “Abbott Elementary” actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, “The Girl King” helmer Gina Prince-Bythewood, “Until” star Danielle Deadwyler, Onyx Collective president Tara Duncan, and “Black Panther: Wakanda Ceaselessly” actress Dominique Thorne.

“For greater than a decade and a half, Essence has championed the Black Girls in Hollywood Awards to commemorate the Black girls who’re the story makers, storytellers, story-doers, and story-sharers that domesticate the leisure ecosystem that the world cherishes and loves deeply,” said Caroline Wanga, Essence Ventures, LLC president and CEO, per Selection. 

Set to happen March 9 in LA, the occasion is described as an ““oasis of sisterhood and a secure area for Black girls to completely see, hear, and embrace each other.”

“Grown-ish’s”  Yara Shahidi and “Until” filmmaker Chinonye Chukwu are amongst this 12 months’s presenters.

Wanga said, “We’re privileged to have this sacred platform that illuminates the on-going accomplishments of Black girls at our annual luncheon in its sixteenth 12 months since inception. Whether or not the world acknowledges it or not, Black girls are the CEOs of residence, tradition, and neighborhood and due to that position, if you interact together with her, you interact with the Black neighborhood as an entire.”
