“Thank you very much for this great honor. I more than honored to be receiving this award. When I was growing up in rural Alabama during the ' 40s and '50s, I tasted the bitter fruits of segregation and racial discrimination. I didn't like it. I saw the signs that said white men, colored women, white women, colored men. And I asked my mother, my father, my grandparents why. They said boy, don't get in the way, don't get in trouble. But the naacp inspired me to get and what I call good trouble, necessary trouble, to try to change America. The naacp has been like a bridge over troubled waters, we are going to have some more troubled waters. We need to naacp now more than ever before. Again, I say thank you.”

“We too often have been expected to be all things to all people and to speak everyone else's position but our very own, says Audra Lorde about black women. Our experiences and stories are too often told through interpreters, and history, system and laws have told us we need a man's voice or power to name our existence and validate our experiences, that we need a son to carry on a legacy to etch our impact in time, but we get to define ourselves, not through how others imagine us but through how we see ourselves, even if our truth makes you uncomfortable, I'm honored to be in the company, of Jill, Tiffany, Yara and Logan, each whose voices transcend the real estate of their designated roles. I am honored to be in the era of Ava, Issa, Lena, Melina, Janelle, Viola, Rihanna, lizzo, Keri, Rashida, Americaand the list goes on and I am humbled to learn from the legacies of sicily, Tyson, ruby, Diane Carroll, Maxine waters, my mom, Rosa parks, Toni Morrison and I love being a part of this ever-growing chorus of bla ck women owning our own legacies.” (1:16 OC . . . our own legacies)

In clip 11, Rihanna accepts the President's Award:

“I just want to say these incredibly talented people who took the work I've been doing for 35 years, the clients I've worked with, I've never had the privilege of working with such talented people and about the humanity and the dignity of the people I represent to the screen and a powerful way. I want to thank Warner bros. For all they did, but mostly this film is for the thousands of innocent people in jails and prisons in this country. Applause We live in a nation with the highest rate of incarceration in the world. The bureau of justice has projected that one in three black male babies born in this country is expected to go to jail or prison. We have a system of criminal justice that treats you better if you're rich and guilty than if you are poor and innocent and we cannot stay silent about this reality. So this platform that we took in the platform is a many of you have is incredibly important. We've got to have truth and justice in this country. We cannot allow these problems to processed. There is a presumption of danger and guilt that gets assigned to black and brown people and you could be a screenwriter and a director or music star and celebrity but you still have to navigate these presumptions of danger and guilt. And I can tell you, as I get older it is exhausting, so we've got to have truth and justice. We've got a five for the things that are important. Thank you this amazing cast, thank you to the naacp for what you do. Let's keep fighting!” (1:32 OC . . . let's keep fighting)

“I just want to thank the naacp for making this one of the most special nights. I got to meet all my heroes in this room. Miss Angela Bassett, thank you for this award. It says I'm the entertainer of the year but you are the entertainer, period. Period, hands down. Thank you so much. I just want to shout out all the big black girls I bring on stage with me. I do that because I want them to know that they are the trophies, and this is the final award of the night. I don't have a want to make it about me. Every last one of you, you are the award, we are so special, we are such a beautiful people, this is just a reminder of all the incredible things that we can do. God bless you and keep on being an award! Let's go! Let's go!”
