Rihanna to Receive NAACP's Most Prestigious Award

Find out where to watch a live stream of the award ceremony.

The NAACP has announced that Rihanna will receive the organization’s top honor, the President’s Award, in recognition of special achievements and outstanding public service. The honor will be presented to the chart-topping musician, FENTY designer and philanthropist at the NAACP’s 51st Image Awards in Pasadena, California.

“Rihanna has not only enjoyed a groundbreaking career as an artist and musician but has also distinguished herself as a stellar public servant,” said NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson. “From her business achievements through FENTY to her tremendous record as an activist and philanthropist, Rihanna epitomizes the type of character, grace, and devotion to justice that we seek to highlight in our President’s Award.” Rihanna will join a long line of distinguished recipients including Jay-Z, Venus Williams, Muhammed Ali and Lauryn Hill.

The NAACP President’s Award will be presented to Rihanna on February 22. You can catch the ceremony during a live event stream on BET starting at 8 p.m. EST (7 p.m. Central).
