Sheryl Lee Ralph Essence Black Women in Hollywood Honoree

Essence Magazine announced that Emmy Award winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph is amongst the 2023 Black Women in Hollywood honorees.

I really have to thank God. Because being at this time in my life, in my career, the things that I have witnessed as a woman, as an artist, as a Black woman… I am ever so grateful.

The award winning actress shared with Essence her thoughts on finally being recognized:

God did not put me here in this place to gather gold objects. God put me here in this place to spread knowledge, to spread wisdom, to be a north star. That’s what I’m here for. All of the other stuff is great. I love it. But, there’s much more for me to give than to just receive awards. At least, that’s the way I look at it. So, now is the time. Not before. I wasn’t ready then.

Also being honored are executive Tara Duncan, director Gina Prince-Bythewood, SAG, BAFTA, Critics’ Choice and NAACP-nominated actress Danielle Deadwyler, and actress Dominique Thorne . This year’s ceremony will include awards presented by actress & producer Yara Shahidi and producer and director Chinonye Chukwu. 

The Star-Studded Red Carpet Event and ESSENCE Hollywood House Will Take Place on March 9-10 in Los Angeles.

Additional talent to be announced.
