ESSENCE, the number one media brand aimed at African-American women, is honoring
"Simply the Best" Black actresses in Hollywood with its annual Oscar-week soiree.
The fourth annual "ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon" will be honoring Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, Loretta Devine and Viola Davis.
This event will be held on February 24, 2011 at the Beverly Hills Hotel and will celebrate African-American women who, through their work in Hollywood, have inspired positive images of Black women around the world.
“As women who define star power, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, Loretta Devine and Viola Davis unquestionably embody the spirit of ESSENCE with strength, optimism and resiliency,” said ESSENCE Communications President Michelle Ebanks. “The ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood luncheon enthusiastically honors the achievements of extraordinary women who are ‘simply the best’ at their craft and boldly encourage millions of other young women who dare to dream.”
