When we’re talking Black music and entertainment, it doesn’t get much bigger than the stars that came out to be honored during the Walk of Fame induction ceremony and Juneteenth celebration on Saturday.
There is something special about honoring those who have done so much to impact the lives of so many around them. One way to do it? Cement them into history forever. Juneteenth weekend was the perfect time to celebrate Black changemakers in music and entertainment and give them their flowers. This year, The Black Music and Entertainment Walk of Fame (BMEWOF) honored 16 legendary inductees, including several that were in attendance to see their star unveiled - T.D. Jakes (Bishop, author and filmmaker), Cathy Hughes (Founder and Chairperson of Urban One, Inc., the largest African American owned and operated, broadcast company in the nation), Rev Run from Run DMC (rapper, producer and television personality) and several others.
