Beverly Bond, we appreciate you so much for the gift of your #BlackGirlMagic because it's true, #BlackGirlsRock.

This year's Black Girls Rock awards show filled us with so much #BlackGirlMagic we aren't quite sure what to do with ourselves.

From the performances to the speeches, to the fashions to the beauty, we all collectively rejoiced as amazing women were saluted for their contributions to music, the arts and the community.

Celebrants Rihanna, Shonda Rhimes, Gladys Knight, Danai Gurira, Amandla Stenberg and Black Lives Matter founders Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi moved us with their dynamic and powerful words. Brandy, Jazmine Sullivan, Andra Day, Lauryn Hill, Marsha Ambrosius, Corrive Bailey Rae, Monica even Living Legend award recipient Gladys Knight gave us life when they hit the stage.

During the awards show, Black Twitter basked in the glory of all the Black girls who truly do rock.

"I had a Black girl that rocked in my family.
I called her mom."
A lot of our mothers paved the way for us Black girls. #BlackGirlsRock

 

I love how .@BLACKGIRLSROCK isn't an award show about competition.
It's about RECOGNITION.
Recognizing our greatness.#BlackGirlsRock

" I've learned how to unravel the societal messages I've internalized" @amandlastenberg #BlackGirlsRock

This feels so good. Seeing us affirmed. Us celebrating the immense talent on stage. Let's hold on to this. Always. #BlackGirlsRock

Change: Envision it. Explore it. Describe it. Plan it. Demand it. #respect to the fam, @aliciagarza @opalayo @osope #BlackGirlsRock

I can't even imagine what it's like to be a young black girl & have a show like this on television. #BlackGirlsRock
