black panther 23 feb 2018The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) will air Essence's 11th annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards as a prime time special event on Saturday 3 March in the US.

For over a decade, the star-studded celebration has been at the forefront of honoring Hollywood's most creative and accomplished African-American female visionaries, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes.

The annual Oscar-week awards celebration, which will air for the fourth year in a row on OWN, will honour four Hollywood game-changers: actress/award-winning playwright Danai Gurira (Black Panther); comedian/award-winning actress Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip); actress/activist Tessa Thompson (Westworld); and Emmy award-winning writer/actress Lena Waithe (Master of None).
