NAACP Image Awards Celebrate Many Cultures, ‘One America’

5 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While controversy around one particular awards show’s racial consciousness simmers, bubbles and boils over, the NAACP Image Awards are determinedly moving forward with its 47th annual ceremony honoring the previous year’s efforts to serve, and reflect, an inclusive America.

Created at the height of the civil-rights movement, the Image Awards officially celebrate “the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts, as well as those individuals or groups who promote social justice through their creative endeavors.”

To NAACP board chairman Roslyn M. Brock, the awards “give society at large an opportunity to see the vast diversity of artistic achievement and accomplishment from every segment of American society. We celebrate the fact that we are the only multicultural, multi-ethnic awards show, highlighting America’s broad diaspora.”

The Image Awards have gradually expanded their reach to cover motion pictures, television and popular music. Literary works were added »
