1. NAACP Image Awards

While brilliant black films get shunned at the Oscars, the NAACP Image Awards has always been the place where we celebrate our own. The industry’s most talented actors, directors and musicians of color get their due praise at the NAACP Awards each year, and 2015 will be no different. Join us in honoring this year’s nominees with a look back at their past NAACP Awards red carpet pictures.
