American soul-influenced funk group Cameo will be presented with this year's Lifetime Achievement Award. With a career spanning four decades, Cameo has released 17 albums and is well-known for their dance floor hits including Single Life, Candy and Word Up!, which led to the pop-culture catch phrase of the same name. Their undeniable impact to contemporary music can be heard in songs from Tupac Shakur to The Beastie Boys.

Driven by his passion for entrepreneurship and sustained by a vision to fill unmet consumer needs, Dennis founded SheaMoisture in 1991 which has grown into one of the world's most recognized beauty brands.

She gained recognition as one of four co-chairs of the Women's March on Washington, which saw participation from five million people worldwide.

13-year old social activist behind the #1000BlackGirlBooks, Marley Dias, will be given The Trailblazer Award. Dias has appeared on Ellen, CBS This Morning and BET's Black Girls Rock and recently became the youngest person featured on this year's Forbes 30 Under 30 List.
