Black Hollywood as well as other influential black entertainers came out to support the 2015 Triumph Awards which were hosted by funny lady, Tichina Arnold. The star-studded show aired just last night (October 3rd) with appearances by Tyrese Gibson, T.I., Soledad O’Brien, John Legend, and Wanda Sykes. The Triumph Awards were created in order to recognize the positive effect and impact individuals of color are having on the community. Among this year’s honorees were: Chief Diversity Officer and Global Director of Education and External Relations for Intel Rosalind Hudnell, Wanda Sykes, Tyrese Gibson, John Legend as well as civil rights leader Reverend Dr. Joseph Echols Lowery.
There were many reasons to feel proud last night after taking in such an empowering show. As the saying goes, ‘Teamwork makes the dream work,’ so working unitedly towards a positive end will accomplish the most good. Speaking of good, what other wonderful sights were able to be seen?
We could not help but take note of all the glam that went down including one trend in particular. It seemed that as if everyone got the same memo before the show…that black was the color to wear! Enjoy the red carpet fashion highlights and congratulations to all of this year’s impactful honorees.
