The yellow of her Ralph's dress symbolized positivity and optimism for the new era that black excellence was ushering in.

The American Black Film Festival is held annually with the earnest dedication to recognizing talents among Black people and exhibiting the brilliance of people of African descent in film making and the creation of television content. MovieMaker Magazine praised the annual event as:

"one of the coolest festivals in the world,"

The festival, visualized by CEO Jeff Friday, who channeled his love and passion for the development and recognition of the talent that black people possess, has quickly become a tradition.

In a vision to create a global scene where people from all of the world could come to celebrate people of African descent, the venture has become well known and respected worldwide.

The "Celebration of Black History" has become a successful and goodwill-driven venture.

Ralph was appreciated this year by The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors along with other brilliant figures of the industry for her philanthropic endeavors, including "The Diva Foundation."

She was termed a "Triple Threat" owing to her prowess in film, television, and on broadway. The Washington Times described the 63-year-old as:

"Actress, singer, and producer Sheryl Lee Ralph is a triple threat in the entertainment industry."

In a demonstration of the solidarity of the Black Film and Television community, British actress Cynthia Erivo was cast in the 2019 film, "Harriet," showcasing the life and inspiring deeds of one of America's most iconic civil rights fighters, Harriet Tubman.

Erivo had initially received criticism for playing an American role and had, at first, lacked support from the Black community.

Erivo addressed the backlash via her social media channels that she cannot explain how protective she was of Harriet.

She added that there was unity in the black culture, and the American Black Film Festival promoted it.
