BGR has gained much notoriety in the past few years. Starting as an innovative non profit, BGR is 501(c)3 non-profit youth empowerment and mentoring organization established to promote the arts for young women of color, as well as to encourage dialogue and analysis of the ways women of color are portrayed in the media.

BGR creator Beverly Bond was recently honored at this year’s boule activities. National President Carolyn House Stewart awarded Bond with the Presidential award. In reaction, Beverly Bond took to Twitter this past July(@beverlybond):

Sorors set your DVR for the Black Girls Rock event this year… or better yet, did someone say, “Pink and Green Watch Party?”
