Essence magazine held its 6th annual Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon yesterday (Feb. 21). The event took place in Los Angeles, CA at The Beverly Hills Hotel, and had a theme that represented The Power of Our Presence. Oprah Winfrey herself was honored with the Power award.
On how it feels to receive the award, Oprah says: “It’s sort of superficial and surreal. It has nothing to do with your real life…. The way I look at it is like: OH, somebody saw that what I really felt I wanted to do, and be, and how I wanted to do that — the award is an acknowledgment that you’re on the right track.”
