The Annual Black Girls Rock taped on Saturday, August 5th 2017 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s Prudential Hall in Newark, NJ. Lots of celebrities graced the red carpet looking absolutely fabulous! In attendance I spotted Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish, Tyrese and many more! The event was created by celebrity DJ Beverly Bond. The event was hosted by Taraji P. Henson who was thrilled to be apart of the celebration.
