Vanessa Williams's recent Instagram share was a jolly image that presented her enjoying a star-studded moment during a new film project. Williams let fans know it was a behind-the-scenes snapshot.

Williams stood with several other stars who, just like her, rocked upscale evening wear as they posed for a group photo seemingly after a theater performance.

Music icon Williams stood in the middle, rocking a creamy floor-length dress studded with pearly details on the neckline. The pearls ran down the bodice to the hem of her dress.

The singer, who doubles as a movie star, styled her hair in waves and looked glamorous rocking well-done makeup. She stood elegant, presenting a sweet smile for the camera. She captioned:

"#bts #standforchange out tomorrow from @blacktheatreunited on @republicrecords."

Black Theater United is a new franchise that Williams and some other A-list stars launched last year with a motive to combat systemic racism while preserving the Black culture and influencing reform in the theater industry.

The 1984 Miss America joined stars like Phylicia Rashad, Lisa Dawn Cave, Natasha Yvette, Audra McDonald, and Darius, along with other celebrities who are founding members.

Williams refused to be subdued and went on to build a career in music despite the scorn.

A public service announcement was released with stars like Samuel L Jackson and his wife LaTanya Jackson joining other actors in sharing the aim of Black Theater United on social media.

The message read that the organization is geared to protect Black talent and all Black lives irrespective of orientation. This would be done through activism for equality.

Williams' tenacious nature is well exercised through Black Theater United, but her zeal and resilience date back to the early 1980s when she first gained fame as the first African-American to become Miss America.

Willaims' beginnings are associated with music because her parents were music teachers. She was passionate about music, but her plunge into fame was through beauty pageantry.

However, she experienced a profound setback early on in her career after Penthouse Magazine released her nude pictures in 1984. She was forced to relinquish her Miss America title.

Williams refused to be subdued and went on to build a career in music despite the scorn. In an interview where she sat with her mom, the public figure made it known that it was her parents' unending support that helped her pull through.
