ESSENCE President Michelle Ebanks and Editor-in-Chief Angela Burt-Murray were on hand to pay tribute to each of the honorees in the room as they were presented with medals by Girls Inc. and the Young Women’s Leadership School.

Some of the stars to attend the event included Naomi Campbell, Gayle King, Gabrielle Union, Kerry Washington (Honoree), Sherri Shepherd, Malaak Compton-Rock and many more.

The event took place at the Mandarin Oriental in New York on Monday.
