As California officially regains its regular routine with the re-opening of the state’s economy, BET is set to make their return with live shows as the BET Awards are slated for a few surprises.
Going down later this month on June 27th, the ceremony will be held at local Microsoft Theatre and hosted by actress Taraji P. Henson. In an official statement Henson announced, “For more than 20 years, the BET Awards have been a celebration of Black creativity, art and excellence. Returning live, this year’s show will be unlike anything we have ever seen before, and I am honored to be sharing the stage with so many powerful and prolific women in music and entertainment. The BET Awards will once again be at the forefront of Black culture.”
This year’s show will also give incredible flowers to the iconic Queen Latifah who’s receiving the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award. As the 20th year is being celebrated, the night’s theme, “The Year Of The Black Woman,” is the highlight of the impact and contributions Black women have had on the culture, and Latifah is undoubtedly the example of pushing the culture forward.
