The 53rd NAACP Image Awards were held in Los Angeles last night and plenty of big names were on hand to honor the winners. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry received the President’s Award in recognition of their public service, while nominees for the Entertainer of the Year Award included Lil Nas X, Jennifer Hudson, Megan Thee Stallion, Regina King, and Tiffany Haddish.
“We’re thrilled to present this award to Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who together have heeded the call to social justice and have joined the struggle for equity both in the US and around the world,” said Derrick Johnson, President and CEO of the NAACP. “Not only do they continue to lead by example, The Duke and Duchess have also decided to inspire the next generation of activists through the NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award, ensuring the support and recognition of generations of civil rights leaders to come.”
