Each June, the show honoring the achievements of African-Americans in music, sports and entertainment, pretty much takes over Twitter as fans tweet every WTF moment. The 2012 ceremony even surpassed the Oscars in social activity, and the network is stepping things up once again for this year’s event, which airs Sunday, June 30 at 8pm ET: the whole thing will be open to the public with the BET Experience in L.A.

We celebrate the achievements of African-Americans throughout the year, whether it’s the BET Awards where we’re doing music, movies and sports, or the BET Honors when we acknowledge people’s lifetime achievements, or Black Girls Rock, which is really about empowering young, Black women — those you’ve heard of and those you haven’t heard of who are doing great things in the community. So we enjoy being able to celebrate our own.
