2019 NAACP Image Awards: 'We Have the Gavel and We Know How to Use It!'

There is nothing like celebrating our own and highlighting black excellence amongst our family. The NAACP Image Awards is just that—a family reunion that is black as hell. I appreciate that.

This year is a special one—the 50th NAACP Image Awards, once again celebrating the best in film, television, music, literature, and social justice figures.

I had the honor of attending my first NAACP Image...

There may not have been any Kevin Hart yelling “nooooo, I wasn’t ready!” to any of the nominees, but the 91st Academy Awards brought the blackness.

February 2019 has provided us a horrible Black History Month so far, but queens such as Regina King and blackety-black films such as Black Panther swooped in to save the day. In fact, Black Panther’s wins brought home Marvel Studios’ first-ever...

On Oscars Sunday, Guess Where We’ll Be? (Hint: In Wakanda—and on Facebook)!

Remember last February, when we were basking in the billion-dollars worth of black excellence that accompanied Black Panther? This February may not currently feel as excellent, but we’re looking forward to reflecting on happier times when the Black Panther cast and crew hit the red carpet this Sunday (and hopefully, scoop us some well-deserved awards).

We’ll also be on the lookout for longtime...

Wakanda Forever? Wakanda For—FREE: Black Panther to Host No-Cost Screenings for Black History Month in 250 AMC Theaters

You thought Wakanda was kidding when it told y’all it’s forever?!

Typically in anticipation of the Oscars, nominated films will do a marketing campaign with additional screenings or limited theatrical re-releases. Sometimes, that re-release occurs after they’ve won the golden trophy, too. It’s really the best way to get those “I’ve never even heard of this movie before but that Oscar buzz got...
