November 9, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): It was the night of all the African Americans as this Sunday the 7th, all the beautiful, smart, strong, talented and super sexy black women gathered to celebrate the power and influence of black women in the society. The televised event was known as ‘Black Girls Rocks’ and it was brought to us by Black Entertainment Television.

American actress, poet, playwright, screenwriter,journalist, activist and one of the most iconic woman of America, Ruby Dee was paid a tribute with the Living Legend Award and was introduced by the exquisite Lynn Whitfield. “Ruby Dee represents everything BLACK GIRLS ROCK!? stands for,” Lynn said.

DJ Beverly Bond, the founder of Black Girls Rock organization said that the black women of America were not being told or reminded of how amazing they where or how amazing they can really be but the event urges them to shout out loud that “Black Girls Rock.”

It all started with a T-shirt design during one of Bond’s DJ’ing performance. She came up with a Tee that had “Black Girls Rock” written on it and there was no turning back since then.
