The Paley Center for Media’s Tribute to African-American Achievements in Television was held at Cipriani Wall Street, New York, May 13, 2015. The glamorous Black Tie event hosted celebrity guests Gladys Knight, Oprah Winfrey, Cicely Tyson, Diahann Carroll, Phylicia Rashād, Lee Daniels, Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Brandy Norwood, Kerry Washington, Gabrielle Union, Gayle King, Uzo Aduba, Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Alicia Quarles, Wynton Marsalis, Michael Strahan, Carla Hall, Mona Scott Young, Shemar Moore, Alfred Enoch, Kelly McCreary, Cheryl Wills, Deborah Roberts, Al Roker, Mara Brock Akil, Gwen Ifill, Kelly McCreary, Robert Battle, Elvis Mitchell, Kimberly Richardson, Omari Hardwick, Rotimi Akinosho, Rev. Al Sharpton, Rashad Jennings, Larry Wilmore, John Singleton, Deborah Lee of BET, and many more.

The event was to recognize and celebrate seven decades of historical and ground breaking contributions made to television across a wide array of genres including drama, comedy, news/talk, music, and variety. This year, 2015, also coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The media in 1965 played a profound and pivotal role galvanizing public support for its passage bringing Selma and other events into the American home. It is also the 35th anniversary of Black Entertainment Television (BET). The event reflected on the social change and the impact television has made.

“We’re going to make them do it in the glaring light of television.” —Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
