Yes! It is the one and only Ms Pauline Long, the founder of BEFFTA Awards. Ms Long is wearing an elegant dress by Asakeoge.
“I would like to welcome every black and ethnic person to celebrate the Black History Month by showing love and support not only to BEFFTA awards UK 2011 nominees through voting but to all African/Caribbean businesses, organisations, charities and projects. Together as a community we can achieve a lot. We are a community of talented, intelligent and hard working individuals and groups and the world must know about this. However they can only know about us if we show them what we are capable of doing as a united community. I hope we will continue to support one another not only in the Black History Month but in all 12 months of the year”. Pauline Long
