Chicago 300 Black Women Awards Ceremony (January 6, 2018)


On January 6, 2018, Chicago 300 Black Women held their awards ceremony. The awards ceremony was held at the beautiful Hilton located 9333 S. Cicero Avenue in Oak Lawn, Illinois. The ceremony started at 1 p.m. and ended around 5 o'clock. 

Chicago 300 Black Women is founded by Dr. Tammy Hicks. The celebration brings together African American women in the Chicago area with the focus being to celebrate women of color.

The ceremony opened with a powerful prayer by Elder Takaira Milton. Be sure to follow her on Instagram @kiki__sings. Elder Milton's prayer set the atmosphere and truly brought everyone to their feet in praise and thanksgiving.

In attendance were some of Chicago's most fascinating people including Benneth "Benny" Lee, Darvece Monson, Rapper iAmPhaTal, Kenyatta Scott and many others.

Dr. Tammy Hicks kept the ceremony lively and even funny at times. Her realness is something truly to be appreciated. It was simply amazing to see 300 Black women in one room praying, laughing, crying and networking.

Chicago is an extremely competitive city, I mean...after all we have Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr and Minister Louis Farrakhan here. Chicago gave birth to the rise of Oprah Winfrey , Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, and President Barack Obama.

Thus whenever you do something in Chicago, like host an awards ceremony, you better come with it and Dr. Tammy Hicks did just that. She's indeed the next best thing coming out of Chicago.
