    Who was the guy that wore those white glasses and sang the gospel song in tribute to Dr. Regina Benjamin? It was very inspirational.

    I just got to my tivo of the Image Awards. I absolutely LOVED the male acapella group with Mavis Staples singing America the Beautiful. It was wonderful, heartfelt, profoundly Black and profoundly American and just on spot. \

    so happy for Regina King, Dr. Benjamin, Darnell Williams (who I have loved since I was a little girl watching him on All My Children); Vanessa Williams was on spot.

    LMAO at the dude in the White glasses.

    That hug between Kimberly Elise and Cicely Tyson was beautiful.

    • Ametia says:

      These awards are quite subdued, full of grace. I appreciate this. The gowns are beautiful, and the women wear them well, but we know that the INNER glow and spiritual essence is what makes these Black women shine.

      And Hollywood may not appreciate their true gifts and the value within them, but we do. We love our Black women in all their hues, with all their complexities, grace, humor, intelligence and love.
