2021 NAACP Activist of the Year
To better connect us to the communities we serve, the NAACP Image Awards® will nationally recognize individuals who are members of the NAACP for the work they do to improve their community, educate the masses, identify the problems, and lead the revolution to fix it. No matter how small or grand the revolution, the values, and commitment of these individuals are essential to elevating the legacy and prominence of the mission of the NAACP, and these Activists deserve to be celebrated.
These social justice warriors must be submitted by their NAACP Branch or Unit for consideration of the NAACP Activist of the Year Award. They CANNOT self Submit. Submissions will be reviewed and judged by a selection committee made up of Image Awards Committee members.
Submissions will be judged on criteria on a scale of 1-10. Once selected, the NAACP Activist of the Year will be notified and hosted by the NAACP Image Awards® to attend the ceremony with a guest. The winning recipient will be announced during the Pre-Awards Dinner, as well as walk the red carpet and attend the 53rd NAACP Image Awards®.
