While we continue to celebrate our recent advances in television, The Paley Center for Media has decided to honor the many achievements of African Americans who have made contributions and influenced change in the form of a black tie tribute event in New York City on May 13th.
Esteemed guests will include Oprah Winfrey, Cicely Tyson, Phylicia Rashad and Lee Daniels. The event will celebrate milestones of the last 70 years, including the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act and the 35th anniversary of the creation of BET.
