Past honorees have included Rihanna, Shonda Rhimes, Iyanla Vanzant, Ava DuVernay, Patti LaBelle, Alicia Keys, Amandla Stenberg, Kerry Washington, among others.

Collins also executive produced the critically praised The New Edition Story, a biopic on the boy band that aired as a 3-part mini-series on BET in January, and executive produces VH1’s Dear Mama and Hip Hop Squares.

2017 Black Girls Rock! will air Sunday, August 20 at 8 PM/7 C on BET.

Collins is repped by CAA, Niles Kirchner Management, Bloom Hergott Diemer and The Collins Jackson Agency.
