Henson will be hosting for a second year in a row at tomorrow’s BET Awards, airing live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Established in 2001, the Black Entertainment Television network (BET) awards celebrate African American stars in music, acting, sports and other fields of entertainment over the past year.

In a recent interview, Taraji spoke about the importance of the BET Awards, and how they have championed her throughout her career.

‘No matter how big I get in my career, no matter how high my star may rise, I will never forget my community,’ she told Essence, talking about ceremony.
