But the #BlackGirlMagic didn’t stop there either. Taraji P. Henson kept us entertained with fabulous outfit changes, wigs galore and a clip from her upcoming action-flick Proud Mary.

Auntie Maxine For The Win!
The most memorable moment of the night occurred when Congresswoman and Black girl shero Maxine Waters condemned the right-alt to hell where they belong.

Solange Is E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G
Solange gifted us with one of the most therapeutic albums of all time while simultaneously offering us a seat at the table. Solo gave us one of our favorite quotes from the show, when she pretty much summed up Black women in one sentence.
Yara Shadid Is All Grown Up
“Black-ish” star Yara Shadidi left us feeling inspired and hopeful for today’s youth the woke teen delivered a riveting acceptance speech that combated racial inequality. Shahidi was the recipient of the “Young, Gifted and Black” award and didn’t disappoint while using her platform to raise awareness around societal issues. “Law taught me what equality and equity were not.”
