Atlanta, GA (April 11, 2018) – AAMBC which stands for African Americans on the Move Book Club has returned with its tenth Annual AAMBC Awards, and to kick off the official “Black Writers Weekend” from June 7 – 10, 2018 Hosted by Hop Hip Legend MC, musician, radio personality, and former MTV VJ ED Lover.

AAMBC creator, Tamika Newhouse says, “Angie Stone has influenced hundreds of creators, recording artists, and producers. Her songs have been the back drop to many love stories and honoring her will be a dream for me since I grew up listening to her music.”

In addition to honoring Angie Stone, Newhouse selected Roxanne Shante for the IAMCREATIVE Icon Award. Newhouse says, “It’s ideal to honor Roxanne Shante who is often named as one of the first female MCs to have mainstream success. To be the first in anything is a huge feat and it is ideal for us to acknowledge the doors Roxanne helped open for more creative such as she.
