Yara Shahidi Is Such An Inspiration After Winning the #GenerationNext Award

Yara Shahidi was just honored with a major award!

The black-ish starlet was honored last night at the 2017 Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards with the Generation Next Award, and it looks like all of her family was there to celebrate.

“I’m fortunate,” Yara shared in her speech after her TV mom Tracee Ellis Ross presented to her. “Because you all have taught me by example what the role of the artist is: to disrupt, to remold and to create.”

Quvenzhane Wallis and Dear White People‘s Logan Browning were also at the event.

Congrats again, Yara!

FYI: Yara wore a head-to-toe Chanel look.
