“The Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon recognizes the ‘Power of our Presence’ by spotlighting the stellar accomplishments of African-American female performers and creators in film and television. More importantly, the annual luncheon serves as a source of support and inspiration for the incredibly talented community of Black women who are often overlooked by the Hollywood establishment,” said Essence Editor-in-Chief Constance C.R. White.
This exclusive celebration is one of the year’s most anticipated Hollywood events during the red carpet season. The magazine also continues the celebration with their Hollywood edition March issue available on newsstands February 8th.
Essence readers and fans can watch their favorite stars dominate the red carpet, listen to interviews and catch live coverage by streaming online at 11:30a.m. PST/2:30p.m. EST. The coverage will re-air that same night at 6p.m PST/9p.m. EST.
