FAB Woman Making History: Beverly Bond

7 Feb

Meet Beverly Bond.

(Side note: She and her organization, ‘Black Girls Rock‘ are everything The FAB Girls wants to be when it grows up. The Black Girls Rock, Inc. organization mentors FAB girls through the arts.The awards ceremony celebrates what makes us FAB, and always turns the spotlight on FAB women and girls who are changing the world for the better. (Leanna Archer was honored there.) If our website can be a fraction as FAB as ‘Black Girls Rock’ is, it will be major. Okay, our gushing session is over. Back to the post.)

A former model and celebrity DJ, she created a ‘Black Girls Rock’ t-shirt and wanted to add some names on the back. The list was longer than the shirt had room and idea to do more with the Black Girls Rock concept lead her to start a mentoring program. Later, the idea to do an awards show was born.

The show was history in the making. Never before had a television show specifically honored the acheivements of FAB Women and Girls. We met current and future leaders, artists, authors, actresses, musicians, doctors; women who are incredibly important but most people may not have known about before watching the show. FAB girls (and women) could watch and think about the infinite possibilities waiting for them.

The star studded Black Girls Rock awards ceremony airs on BET, and in the past has included Nia Long as a host, with musical performers such as Jill Scott, Keyshia Coles and Monica. Award recipients have included FAB Actresses Raven-Symone and Tatyana Ali. We can’t wait for the next one, and to cheer on our FAB sistren!
