We are so excited about the American Black Film Festival #ABFFhonors which airs TONIGHT at 8:00 PM EST!! This prestigious annual event celebrates Black culture by honoring individuals, movies and television shows that have had a significant impact on American entertainment.
I wasn’t able to attend the show hosted by the beautiful comedian Regina Hall… which took place February 17, 2017 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. I’m looking forward to see all the special appearances from Cecily Tyson, Nia Long, Larenz Tate and more!
