BET’s Black Girls Rock held on Friday night (April 1) at NJPAC Prudential Hall in Newark, New Jersey, and it was quite the event as a number of successful and inspiring black women came together for a worthy cause.

‘Black Girls Rock’ is a global women’s empowerment movement and a nonprofit mentoring organization and the event last night was attended by Jazmine Sullivan, Monica, Brandy, Andra Day, Justine Skye, Claire Sulmers, Ledisi, Naturi Naughton, Kelly Rowland, Erykah Badu, Debra Lee, and many more inspiring women.

Pop star Rihanna and TV mogul Shonda Rhimes were among the honorees at this year’s Black Girls Rock! event, where Hillary Clinton made an appearance and told the audience “my life has been changed by strong black women leaders.”

The event was hosted by Hollywood actresses Tracee Ellis Ross.

The ‘Black Girls Rock’ event will be shown on BET on Tuesday, April 5, 2015.

    What is Rihanna wearing? And Skai Jackson is just 13 years old yet they keep dressing her like she’s 25. Not age appropriate

      Seriously, I’m her biggest fan but this isn’t working for her at all. She needs to loose weight and hire a better stylist because these days she is just looking terrible and yes the weight is a part of the reason. Not saying she needs to be stick thin but this is not conducive to her overall wellbeing surely
