GET READY FOR THE VERY FIRST “AMERICAN BLACK FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS” CEREMONY

Published February 19, 2016 by sheezacoldpiece

  
Kerry Washington, Taye Diggs and Octavia Spencer are expected at the first American Black Film Festival Awards — organized in response to the Oscars’ snub of black performers.
The ABFF Awards in LA on Sunday will honor Diahann Carroll, Don Cheadle, Regina King, “Creed” director Ryan Coogler and Will Packer.
Carl Weathers, who played Apollo Creed in the “Rocky” films, will present the film category. The awards show will air on BET and Centric on Tuesday.

This is what we need to recognize and honor “us” when others don’t.  We don’t need a Oscar to validate our talent and hardwork.  We need exactly this platform by us, for us, to showcase our talents and achievements.  

Be sure to tune in  Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on BET and Centric as the American Black Film Festival, BET, and Black Enterprise host ABFF Awards, an annual gala saluting excellence in motion pictures and television.
