2017 NAACP Image Awards Nominees' Luncheon

Actress Yvonne Orji of Issa Rae's show Insecure

The beauty of attending any event associated with the NAACP organization is that is steeped in

history as well as having an eye on future icons. So when I saw a tale of two Kuntas on the red

carpet with Actor Levar Burton, who originally played Kunta Kinte in the historic mini-series

Roots,  side by side with the Actor Malachi Kirby who plays the same character in the re-imagined

Roots which premiered on the History Channel I knew this would be a special event. The NAACP

Image Awards Nominees' Luncheon was held at the Loews Hollywood Hotel with nominees and

legends walking the red carpet. I paused when I first saw Actor LeVar Burton, I mean do you blame

me? I grew up on Reading Rainbow, a little older in my childhood I understood the powerful

nature of Roots and his indelible performance, and I was hyped to see him on Star Trek. His

ability to have such range was amazing. He was just as gracious as dignified and gracious as I

imagined. Saying the name of my outlet "Young, Bold, And Regal' with an emphasis on the

"Regal". That was great!

  I spotted actress Yvonne Orji of Issa Rae's hit HBO Show Insecure.
