On Saturday, October 16, 2010, BET Networks will take over the historic Paradise Theatre in New York City for the star-studded affair honoring exceptional women of color. Black Girls Rock! represents a select group of individuals whose contributions and accomplishments have enriched and advanced our culture. The network premiere will be televised exclusively on BET, Sunday, November 7th @ 8 -“ 10 p.m.

“I went to a Black Girls Rock Inc. event that Beverly Bond produced 3 years ago and knew immediately upon entry that BET had to partner with this event,” said Stephen Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials for BET Networks. “The positive energy was palpable. We are proud to celebrate the strengths, triumphs and talents of Black women in this very special show and bring Beverly’s message and vision to our audience.”

“I am proud that Black Girls Rock Inc. is at the forefront of a movement inspiring women of color to take charge of our images, our dignity and our impact on the world,” said Beverly Bond, founder of Black Girls Rock Inc. “This historic partnership with BET Networks gives BGR! an incredible and much needed platform to highlight our ‘sheroes’ and hold them up as shining examples of the great women that we are, so that future generations of girls in our communities can see positive examples of who they can become.”

The following award categories will be included in the Black Girls Rock! televised special:

  • The “Rock Star” Award: This will be awarded to a fierce and fearless woman who has successfully pushed the envelope and carved a niche where other artists dutifully follow.

  • Who Got Next?: This award recognizes ultimate talent straight ‘out the gate.’ This fire-starter has created a buzz and proved herself as a force to be reckoned with.
  • Living Legend: This award is given to a select individual of remarkable talent whose life long contributions and accomplishments have enriched and advanced our culture.
