On April 5, BET aired the 2015 "Black Girls Rock" Awards, celebrating black girls and women who — well, they rock.
Ciara, Jill Scott, and Faith Evans performed. Women like Nadia Lopez, Jada Pinkett Smith, Erykah Badu, Ava DuVernay, Cicely Tyson, and Dr. Helene D. Gayle took home awards honoring them for their many achievements.
Still, the moment of the night had to be when First Lady Michelle Obama took the stage to give a supremely inspiring speech.

She described some of the challenges that young black women face, especially regarding social expectations.
