Ruby Dee (above) was honored with the "Living Legend Award" at Black Girls Rock which also presented awards to other African-American women for their contribution to the community and impact on society. Lynn Whitfield who presented the award to the civil rights activist and iconic actress introduced Ruby Dee as: the woman who represents everything that ‘Black Girls Rock’ stand for.

BET’s Debra Lee also said that Ruby Dee’s appearance on the show was something that moved her the most. She said that in spite of being such a huge legend she danced down the red carpet and also had an amusing expression when being honored.
Dr. Iyanla Vanzant (above left), was another Black icon who received the Motivator award and also gave an exceptional speech on receiving the honor. She said that: "Black Girls Rock because they have no other choice." Iyanla explained that "it is the responsibility of African-American women to rock the community, the society and the world to ensure that their grandmothers did not die in vain."
