Queen Latifah To Host "54th NAACP Image Awards"
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) BET and the NAACP announced that GRAMMY(R) award-winning musician, critically acclaimed Emmy and Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated actress and producer Queen Latifah will host the "54th NAACP Image Awards" airing LIVE on Saturday, Feb. 25, at 8:00 PM ET/PT on BET. The live show will also simulcast across Paramount Global networks including BET HER, CBS, CMT, Comedy Central, LOGO, MTV, MTV2, Paramount Network, POP TV, Smithsonian, TV Land and VH1.

"It's an honor to host the "54th NAACP Image Awards," especially in the year we are celebrating 50 years of hip hop," said Queen Latifah. "This is a night to celebrate Black excellence and Black contributions to our industry and beyond. Celebrating one another, lifting each other up and you know we'll have fun doing it!"

"Queen Latifah is one of our generation's most influential and iconic voices. We are excited to collaborate with the groundbreaking megastar as she hosts the NAACP Image Awards," said Connie Orlando, EVP Specials, Music Programming & Music Strategy at BET. "As always, we look forward to partnering with the NAACP to celebrate Black creativity and ingenuity for an unforgettable night of Black excellence that will inspire, entertain and empower viewers worldwide."

"This year's NAACP Image Awards will be an amazing celebration, highlighting the major accomplishments of political leaders, entertainers, activists and other changemakers. It will also be a night that shows how our community can come together and impact each other and the world in a positive way," said Derrick Johnson, NAACP president and CEO.

The star-studded evening will also feature A-list presenters taking the stage, including Brian White, Cliff "Method Man" Smith, Damson Idris, Taye Diggs, Harold Perrineau, Issa Rae, Janelle Monáe, Janelle James, Jonathan Majors, Kerry Washington, Letitia Wright, Morris Chestnut, Ms. Pat, NAACP President Derrick Johnson, NAACP Chairman Leon W.
