PHOTOS: Michael B. Jordan, Lena Waithe, Cynthia Erivo, and more STUN at the NAACP Image Awards
The 51st annual NAACP Image Awards are going down in Pasadena and that means Hollywood’s best and brightest are all in attendance.
Folks like Lena Waithe, Cynthia Erivo, Michael B. Jordan, and more all brought their best style game to the night that celebrates the achievements of people of color in film, TV, music, and literature.
