Wow, that was fast!
If, by chance, you haven’t been keeping count, this week marks not only the end of February and Black History Month, but it’s also the final week of the Winter Olympics – go Shani Davis! We hope you’ve enjoyed them all.
Now that Fashion Week is behind us (wasn’t that fun?), we’re getting prepped for round-two of award season, starting with the NAACP Image Awards this Friday, followed by the Independent Spirit Awards and of course, the Academy Awards.
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we’re also gearing up to bring you all of the sights and sounds from our Third Annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, which will take place on Tuesday, March 4. Though we can’t give away too much now, be sure to check back in with us, soon, for coverage of our esteemed honorees, red carpet interviews and photo galleries. It’s going to be magical…we promise!
But first, we present you with the happenings for this week. Enjoy every moment.
