Literary Awards: NAACP Image Awards - Literature

This guide gives a listing of some of the literary award winners.

The NAACP Image Awards

The NAACP Image Awards is an annual awards ceremony presented by the U.S.-based National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to honor outstanding performances in film, television, theatre, music, and literature. Similar to other awards, like the Oscars and the Grammys, the over 40 categories of the Image Awards are voted on by the award organization's members (in this case, NAACP members). Honorary awards (similar to the Academy Honorary Award) have also been included, such as the President's Award, the Chairman's Award, the Entertainer of the Year, and the Hall of Fame Award. The MSUB Library chose to collect NAACP Awards for Outstanding Literary Works in Fiction and Nonfiction.
