GALLERY: 2014 Essence Black Women in Hollywood

Lincoln Motor Company was recently the presenting sponsor for ESSENCE’s 7th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

The 2014 ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon honored three outstanding women: director/writer, Ava DuVernay; Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences President, Cheryl Boone Issacs; and “12 Years a Slave” actress, Lupita Nyong’O.

Lincoln had the honor of awarding Ava DuVernay with the 2014 Black Women in Hollywood Visionary Award. The award was co-presented by ABC’s “Scandal” actress, Kerry Washington.

One lucky winner of Lincoln’s #shinelikeastar Instagram contest was able to attend the event and take in the Lincoln experience with a guest.

Celebrity guests like Ava DuVernay, Bevy Smith, Denise Nicholas, Nichelle Nichols and others arrived to the event in the 2014 Lincoln MKZ. The ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, now in its seventh year, is noted as one of the must-attend events during Oscar week.
