eyeLoved: Black Girls Rock!

On November 7, 2010, BET aired BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Hosted by actress Nia Long, the show highlighted the lives of black girls and women making a difference. Black Girls Rock! Inc. is a non-profit youth empowerment and mentoring organization established to promote the arts for young women of color, as well as to encourage dialogue and analysis of the ways women of color are portrayed in the media. Founder of BGR, Beverly Bond and BET executive, Deborah Lee did a great job in putting together a wonderful and inspiring event.

The show featured "M.A.D. Black Girl Who Rock", which included you're average girls that made a difference in their community by their work, volunteering and advocay. Celebrity honorees included: Raven Symoné, Missy Elliot, Ruby Dee, Keke Palmer, Iyania Vanzant, General Marcelite J. Harris, and Teresa Clark.

Since 2006, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! has been dedicated to the healthy development of young women and girls. BLACK GIRLS ROCK! seeks to build the self-esteem and self-worth of young women of color by changing their outlook on life, broadening their horizons, and helping them to empower themselves. For the past four years, we have enjoyed the opportunity to enrich the lives of girls aged 12 to 17 years old through mentorship, arts education, cultural exploration and public service. At BLACK GIRLS ROCK!, young women are offered access to enrichment programs and opportunities that place special emphasis on personal development through the arts and cooperative learning.

By speaking to the next generation in their formative years about issues of self-worth, goals, and aspirations, the organization reinforces the message that young women need not objectify themselves or relinquish their autonomy. BLACK GIRLS ROCK! has boldly taken on the crisis of our female youth of color here in America head on and understands the need for positive self-images and a strong sense of awareness.
