We had a chance to congratulate the nominees for the 50th NAACP Image Awards and and praise them for telling the authentic stories of people of color, emphasizing the importance of representation across Hollywood, politics, and the corporate landscape.
As President Johnson said, “how people see us on the big screen is how they treat us in the streets. The Image Awards Nominees Luncheon is an occasion to celebrate the nominees of the prestigious Image Award. The best and brightest in film, television, music, literature, and social justice. We are here because each one of you has been integral to furthering equity, quality, and inclusion.”
Take a look at the class photo featuring many of this year’s nominees.
Voting for the 50th NAACP Image Awards is open to the public. Viewers have the opportunity to vote for their favorite nominees in 36 different categories across film, television, and music, and for the Entertainer of the Year.
The 50th NAACP Image Awards will air live on TV One on Saturday, March 30, 2019 and we are excited to get your input.
