The event was hosted by Award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson with a live audience in attendance for the first time since the pandemic began.

“Celebrating Black women isn’t a fad or a trend it’s a forever mood. There is more than enough room for all of us to thrive, because can’t nobody be like me and can’t nobody be you like you,” Henson said as she opened the ceremony.
