Amandla Stenberg to Receive Equality Now’s Inaugural Changemaker Award

Women’s rights organization Equality Now will honor young actress Amandla Stenberg with the inaugural Changemaker Award at its Make Equality Reality Gala at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Dec. 3. The Changemaker Award, presented by Gucci and Chime for Change, celebrates the next generation of activists who are championing gender equality and inspiring positive change through self-expression and active citizenship.
“The Hunger Games” and “The Hate U Give” actress has received widespread acclaim for speaking out about sexual violence and for using her platforms to protest against inequality and injustice. Comedian and actress Whitney Cummings will serve as the evening’s host.
The event will also honor author Margaret Atwood (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) as a longtime champion of women’s rights, as well as philanthropist and behavioral geneticist Sue Smalley, Ph.D. for her invaluable part in making gender equality a reality through her role on Equality Now’s board.
Yasmeen Hassan, global executive director of Equality Now, said, “We are in a difficult time in history with backtracking on human rights and equality for women and girls. I see hope and great potential in the unprecedented activism of youth who are finding new ways to raise their voices against injustice. The future is theirs

Jaden Smith Goes To Prom With ‘Hunger Games’ Star Amandla Stenberg

These two totally have our vote for prom king and queen.

Jaden Smith escorted “Hunger Games” actress Amandla Stenberg to prom on Friday night, and judging from their Instagram pictures, they were easily the most interesting couple there.

Stenberg, who played Rue in the “Hunger Games,” looked super chic in a metallic lamé gown, while Will Smith’s 16-year-old son, ever the eclectic dresser, wore what appears to be a black-and-white dress, topped with a black blazer. The 16-year-old actress shared snapshots from the night on her Instagram account:
