It was a proud and uplifting night at the 2016 BET Honors, which aired on Monday. In the two-hour star-studded ceremony, many joined at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. in honor of some of the most extraordinary leaders in business, arts and politics for their contributions to the Black community.
The five honorees included Grammy award-winning singer and pie entrepreneur, Patti Labelle, producer/director Lee Daniels, former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder, Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid, and Ariel Investments president.
