The 50th Annual NAACP Image Awards were held this past Saturday, March 30th. The who’s who of the black entertainment community was in attendance, and I was able to tweet like a mad person to celebrate each and every attendee, nominee and winner.
It’s so exciting to see so much Black excellence in one room. We watch the NAACP Image Awards every year, and this year was extra special because of Black Panther.
Dreaming Like A Black Panther
Black Panther has changed the dynamic in our home, and within the whole world. To be part of the promotion and celebration of Black Panther was a dream come true. To see all of the amazing black films honored during the awards reminded me of how powerful our community is, and all the things we can accomplish. It reminded me how important it is to dream.
When you dream in black, it causes a ripple in the universe. These black films, actors, producers, directors, and all around phenomenal people reminded us on Saturday night how vital it is to dream and do.
What Happens When You Dream In Black
Being able to tweet with fellow AT&T Dream In Black bloggers on Saturday was a dream within itself. Some of the AT&T Dream In Black Honorees were nominated that evening, and we had the privilege of rooting them on via Twitter.
From Queen Latifah, to Lena Waithe and Omari Hardwick, these superstars were worth all the praise we were able to give them via copious amounts of tweets. When you dream in black, all things are possible, and this is what these honorees were able to show us that evening.
The night was magical. We had a touch of church, comedy and politics in the mix of the show, and Beyonce brought the whole room to their feet by requesting a standing ovation for Black Panther. Again, we were able to honor the African diaspora that motivates and inspires us to this day.
