In a momentous acknowledgment of her burgeoning influence and contributions to the entertainment industry, Halle Bailey is set to be honored at this year’s Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards.

Under the banner of “Radiant Power,” this year’s theme aptly captures the dynamic presence and transformative influence of Black women in entertainment.

Essence Ventures’ President and CEO, Caroline Wanga, emphasized the importance of community, joy, and justice in the entertainment industry. In her statement, Wanga reflected on the challenges faced by the industry, including the recent disruptions caused by calls for equity and justice, and underscored the need for ongoing efforts to foster sustainable change. She hailed the Essence awards as a platform that magnifies the collective achievements and potential of Black women, without overshadowing the ongoing struggle for equitable representation and treatment.
