Black People Rock Honors is based out of Bridgeport, Connecticut. We honor individuals in and around the community for their Work, Achievements, and Positive Influence. There is so much negativity going on in the world and I wanted to show the Black Community in a great light. Black People Rock is not about people who are popular or apart of a certain organization. This is not a competition about who has a degree, been in business, or in leadership the longest. This is about our culture, unity, lifting one another up and not tearing each other down. I see so many Kings and Queens with a light shining so bright inside of them and sometimes they can't see it because they believed what others told them. But I'm here to tell you that You Rock, I celebrate and to never give up.
Black People Rock in 2017 started off just another event with speakers and vendors but something was still missing because this type of event is common. I saw a lot of entrepreneurs working hard, trying to make it, and just wanted to get genuine support. One day God woke me up one morning in 2018. He gave me instructions on how to move forward with Black People Rock and told me to give Honor. Black People Rock has honored over 200 individuals and some include The Exonerated 5, Rev. Dr. Calvin O.Butts III, Deon Kipping, June Archer, LaChanze, Wade The Barber, Roberta Hoskie, Mike Clemons, Louis L. Reed, and so many more amazing individuals.
In 2021, Black People Rock Honors will plan it's the first tour to honor individuals in different states. So many people have asked to bring this event across the world and we're so excited that it's finally happening.
We can't wait to present the Virtuous Woman, Woman of Integrity, Man of Excellence, Community Leadership, Purpose Driven, Entrepreneurs on the Rise, Man of Integrity, Go-Getters and so many more awards to more Kings and Queens that's just striving for Excellence.
You rock and there's nothing you can do about it.
