Response to Ferguson: Systemic Problems Require Systemic Solutions

Ferguson ASSOCIATED PRESS

Too many whites are too willing to believe that a black body poses a threat.

RECAP: Tyler Perry Scores Big at 42nd Annual NAACP Image Awards

Comments (14)



Tonight's 42nd annual NAACP Image Awards was a star-studded affair that brought together some of the most notable personalities in entertainment to Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium. From Angela Bassett and Anthony Mackie to LL Cool J and Regina King, the stars came out in full force.

Tyler Perry, who garnered the most Image Award nominations in the categories of film and television, was the big winner of the night, racking up awards for Outstanding Motion Picture and Outstanding Director in a Motion Picture for the film 'For Colored Girls.' In accepting the award for Outstanding Motion Picture, Perry thanked the choreopoem's original author, Ntozake Shange, whose play the film was adapted from. With the cast of 'For Colored Girls' standing behind him, the 'Madea Goes to Jail' director also spoke about a challenge in making the film, stating that the difficulty was in bringing the film to audiences that might not be familiar with the work. Perry also made sure to thank black women for their continued support of his work.



Some of the other highlights of the show included the presentation of the President's Award to Colin Powell and surprise guest Prince, who presented the award for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture to Halle Berry for her role in 'Frankie & Alice.'
