At the Black Girls Rock awards, Tarana Burke was presented with the Community Change Award for her activism and work for victims of sexual assault.
Undeniably, black girls rock and on Tuesday night, BET celebrated just that with its aptly named Black Girls Rock! awards. During the 10th annual ceremony, which was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross (she opened the show with a magical musical number), stars including Rihanna, Shonda Rhimes, and Amandla Stenberg were honored, each delivering inspiring speeches. Activists Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi, the founders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, were also given accolades and Hillary Clinton even stopped by, taking a break from the campaign trail to make a brief appearance to speak on the legacy of black women.
