It’s an event like no other! The Paley Center for Media’s “Hollywood Tribute to African-American Achievements in Television” honors and celebrates diversity on the small screen.
This year’s event, presented by JPMorgan Chase & Co., is sure to be a huge hit with who’s who scheduled to be in attendance.
Tyra Banks, Diahann Carroll, Don Cheadle, Ava DuVernay, Louis Gossett Jr., Terrence Howard, Quincy Jones, Keegan-Michael Key, Regina King, Tyler Perry, Wesley Snipes, and Keenen Ivory Wayans are among the growing roster of icons and influential industry pioneers slated to attend to honor notable contributions made by African-Americans in a wide array of television genres: drama, comedy, news/talk, sports, and music–across seven decades.
Also during the event a special highlight of the evening will include a salute to Black Entertainment Television’s (BET) 35th anniversary. This year also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act and the role of television as a pivotal platform for addressing important issues, breaking down barriers, and creating social change.
The Hollywood Tribute to African-American Achievements in Television will take place on Monday, October 26 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
