It was a night to remember!
Despite Black culture being mainstream, there are many moments where our influencers, artists, griots, and change-makers are not properly acknowledged. Thankfully, we’ve learned to build our own platforms and give each other the roses we so greatly deserve. There is no award show that does this better than the NAACP Image Awards. This past weekend, the 54th annual show aired, and it was chock full of Black excellence. All of the stars shined bright that night and our hearts were full! In celebration of the necessary work of the NAACP and all of those who were nominated and/or won, here are our 10 favorite moments from the 54th NAACP Image Awards:
