Queen Latifah was on deck at the 2021 BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (June 27) to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award.
June 27, 2021 Queen Latifah then showed her appreciation to BET, praising the network for providing the platform Black excellence, while stressing how important it was for women to support other women. I want to thank BET for creating an outlet for beautiful Blackness to thrive, to shine, she continued. When we couldnt get played on the radio in other places, we couldnt get our videos played in other places, there was BET that allowed us to be in our fullness. Bless everybody that graced the stage tonight and everybody in the audience for all your support. Be Black. Black is beautiful. I was raised by a strong Black woman. She ended with, I wanted to celebrate us because I know together we stand stronger than when we tear each other apart. Respect to all the female MCs on the stage tonight. Happy Pride!
