Brandy, Ciara, & Keyshia Cole Among Performers At 2012 ‘Black Girls Rock!’

Published: Wednesday 3rd Oct 2012 by Rashad


Looks like this year’s BET presentation of ‘Black Girls Rock!’ is set to be its best yet.

Indeed, the showcase designed to highlight some of the globe’s best and brightest women of color, is returning to the air this fall to add more names to its growing list of honorees.

And, with the likes of Ciara, Brandy, Keyshia Cole, & India Arie on hand to lend the night’s entertainment, it’s safe to say viewers are in for quite the treat:


Actress Kerry Washington (‘Scandal’) and songstresses Alicia Keys and Dionne Warwick are three of the night’s big honorees.  Earning recognition for excellence in their crafts as well as philanthropic activities.  Set for taping on October 13 at New York City’s Loews Paradise Theatre, the Tracee Ellis Ross/Regina King-hosted show will not hit television screens until November 4 at 8:00 pm/ET on BET (source).

    This new girl Keysha Cole is very skinny, I gues she wouldn’t be invited to thick girls rock. Or even fat girls rock which will be hosted my XXXLTina Agimmemorepizza at KFC.

    Finally, something celebrating black women and putting them in a positive light than the stereotypical ghetto-hood negative light. Its about time that there is a show/ fragment dedicated to black women’s success.

    Love Ciara and Brandy!!! I consider myself a fan of Keyshia Coleslaw’s (earlier) music so glad she’s on.. but I know she gon be a BIT of a mess.

    Isn’t that name kinda…racist? Don’t Hispanic, Latina, and Asian girls rock too? (I know if anybody tried to pull some “White Girls Rock” BS, there’d be RIOTS).

    Why not just call it “Girls Rock”? Then it’s not about race, but about all girls around the world!

    • Benron (King Of The Navy) October 3, 2012

      Are culture does not discrimminate heavily against white girls. But if somebody made an “Asian girls rock” or a “Hispanic Entertainment Telvision” nobody would castrate the makers.

      • October 4, 2012

        Actually they have Telemundo and more Spanish Television shows than Blacks. We are finally catching up though. We BET, TV ONE, CENTRIC, ASPIRE and OWN is owned by OPRAH. OH and Bob Johnson , the founder of BET is coming out with another tevelsion network dedicated to black folk. So we are making strides.

    • mobwife! October 3, 2012

      Yes and on The Asian, Latino & white oriented stations then they Rock as well! However, on BET –> BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION< — BLACK GIRLS ROCK & RULE!! 🙂

    • When African Americans don’t have to struggle to be portrayd right or at all is when whites can talk. October 3, 2012

      If African-Americans wore able to be portrayd in a positive light or even have a chance to have a voice on white tv then we wouldn’t have to have a show. Before you talk look at tv, who do you mostly see on and in a good light? White folks. So when they stop owning everything and making it harder for minorities to be apart of anything then you can talk. Stop the ingnorance.

      Excuse me but do you comprehend well. The show is on Black Entertainment Televison okay. SO its target would be Black Women and why not. They have Telemundo and all sorts of Spanish and Jewish Shows. Why cant black women have some to celebrate talented, intelligent sisters in a positive light. Go somewhere with your whining. BET and BLACK GIRLS ROCK IS HERE TO STAY. SO DEAL WITH IT
