The NAACP has fought against negative portrayals of people of color in film and television since "Birth of A Nation" in 1915.
Today the NAACP Hollywood Bureau is a satellite of the National office that deals with issues of diversity programming and minority employment in Hollywood, and oversees the production of the NAACP Image Awards.
The ABC series will address one of the NAACP’s core issue areas of police brutality, by what the show is calling “doing justice to an episode about injustice.”
Winners and nominees stopped by our #ImageAwards Instagram booth during the show.
Legendary artist, activist and philanthropist MC Lyte joins us to discuss the importance of artists taking part in activism. Also joining the conversation will be Michelle Nealy and Nicole Kenney. The Image Awards airs live, 8pm ET Feb. 6 on TV One.
