Icon Mann hosted their “Annual pre-Oscar Power 50 Dinner” Tuesday night celebrating today’s most notable philanthropic Black men at The Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.
With the tagline, “Being the best at what you do places you on the list. How you consistently pay-it-forward puts you in the room.” , the event was full of power players including Lee Daniels, Forest Whitaker, Michael Ealy, and Michael B. Jordan.
Because this was an event that highlighted the amazing work that Black men have done, HipHollywood hit the red carpet and asked stars including Michael Ealy and Laz Alonso about the importance of Black role models.
