There was a plethora of Black Excellence that hit the red carpet and Hollywood Unlocked made sure to catch up with everyone and then some. Issa Rae, Letoya Luckett, MC Lyte, Michael Rainey Jr. Amara LeNegra, Timon Kyle Durrett and more stopped to talk to us before heading inside to enjoy the live show taping.

We wanted to know how the celebrity guests felt about attending the NAACP’s historical awards ceremony on a national holiday made in honor of the late great Martin Luther King Jr. Of course, everyone was honored to be able to celebrate MLK Day with the NAACP. 

We also asked the celebrity influencers how they feel about the current #TimeUp #MeToo movement that has taken Hollywood by storm. Many expressed their sincerest support for the movement while also saying “Time’s Up” for inequality and pay disparities in all industries. 

Some celebrities also shared their thoughts on President Trump’s latest round of controversial remarks where he referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as “sh*thole countries”. 

Hollywood Unlocked had an amazing time covering the red carpet for the 49th NAACP Image Awards. Press Play above to watch our full event recap.
