Last night singer Janelle Monae was among the honorees at the 7th Annual Black Girls Rock Awards which was televised last night(11-4-12) on BET. If you are unfamiliar with the awards ceremony's purpose, it was founded to honor black women in all fields who have been positive role models for young black girls. Janelle's speech was beautiful, but what moved me most was the end of her acceptance speech.
"I didn't have to become perfect because I've learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness. Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable."
Those two sentences summed up what Black Girls Rock stands for. Being you!
