On Thursday, February 2, 2017  Roxanne Shante  celebrated 30 years of contributing to philanthropy, entertainment, education and women empowerment. The star-studded event was held at the beautiful Hudson Terrace powered by Music Speaks Power, SK Public Relations, and Music Power Respect, Ent. Mimi’s Planned Events supplied appetizers and desserts. YAC Radio’s DJ Will was on set.  Surprise guest DJ Wiz (Kid N’ Play), made an appearance on the turn tables.  Hosted by June Archer of Eleven 28 Entertainment and Terri P of Candid with Terri and Keith, the crowd was thoroughly engaged and entertained. ArnStar (plays MC Shan in the Roxanne Roxanne film), Brooke Lynn, Gros Dinero and Poppa all performed. Roxanne Shantè was presented with an award and she addressed the crowd. She blessed them with words of encouragement in true Roxanne Shantè #plzbelieveit.  She was all smiles.
