Over the weekend, I attended Sheen Magazine’s Black Tie Gala and met Shug Avery from the Color Purple! Yes indeed… the fabulous event was held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis where Actress Margaret Avery, Singer Kelly Price, Sterling Coleman, Business Acumen and Judge Glenda Hatchett, Politics & Law were celebrated and honored.
This was Sheen Magazine’s premiere ending of the Legendary Weekend celebrating 10 years of existence. The evening was hosted by Kimberly Chapman, Publisher and Sammi Haynes, Editor-In-Chief and I must say it was a job well done. The carpet was lit and the room was filled with so many lovely people “dressed to impress”.
But I have to admit… when honoree Margaret Avery entered the room… all of our mouths dropped as she walked with such grace, beauty and style. And to top it off… she was equally JUST as pleasant. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve quoted her lines from the movie Color Purple. “Yo paw love you?? My paw love me.. only he don’t know it yet.” “I’z married now… I say I’z married now”. LOL, you couldn’t tell me I wasn’t Shug. It was certainly a pleasure to meet this remarkable woman.
Take a look at some of the red carpet pics I snapped including honorees Sterling Coleman, Kelly Price and Maragret Avery. Note: Judge Glenda Hatchett was not able to attend.
