The 51st NAACP Image Awards were handed out on Saturday in a ceremony hosted by Anthony Anderson and held live at the Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California. The annual gala celebrates outstanding achievements and performances of people of colour, as well as those who promote social justice through art.

On the TV side of things, Black-ish won big, claiming prizes for Outstanding Comedy Series, Supporting Actor and Actress, and more. On the music side, Lizzo, Beyoncé and Lil Nas X were just a few of the stars packed up awards at the 2020 NAACP Awards.

Rihanna was awarded the President’s Award as she was celebrated for her impressive career in music and fashion, and her philanthropy, including her Clara Lionel Foundation, which supports and funds education, health and emergency response programs around the world.

If there’s anything that I’ve learned it’s that we can only fix this world together…” Rihanna said in her acceptance speech. She spoke about the importance of allyship, asking audience members to raise their hands if they have colleagues and partners and friends from other races, sexes, religions.


They want to break bread with you, right?” she asked. “They like you? Well, then, this is their problem too. When we’re marching and protesting and posting about the Michael Brown Jrs. and the Atatiana Jeffersons of the world, tell your friends to pull up,” she added.
