Paris-Cheryl

Paris Barclay (the first African American President in the Directors Guild's 77 year history) and Cheryl Boone Isaacs (the first African American president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and the third woman to achieve that title) will be inducted into the Image Awards Hall of Fame at the 45th NAACP Image Awards, broadcast live as a two-hour star-studded telecast beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT tape-delayed on Saturday, February 22 on TV One, the civil rights organization announced today. 

Produced by Reginald Hudlin and Phil Gurin, the telecast will also include a one-hour pre-show airing live from the red carpet.

The Hall of Fame Award is bestowed on an individual who is a pioneer in his or her respective field and whose influence will shape the profession for generations to come.

"I am profoundly grateful to have been chosen by the NAACP for this incredible honor," said Barclay. "As a director and the father of two young sons, I am inspired by the NAACP's continued efforts to recognize artists and leaders striving for a positive impact on the world, and I am humbled to join the ranks of those who have been honored before me."

"I'm deeply honored to be recognized by the NAACP, an organization that for my entire lifetime has been at the vanguard of the fight for equality in our country," Boone Isaacs said. "I'm a longtime admirer of the NAACP Image Awards and the work they've done to promote diversity and inclusiveness in the entertainment industry, and I couldn't be more proud to be inducted into the Hall of Fame."

"I am honored to induct these two pioneers into the NAACP Image Awards Hall of Fame," stated Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman of the NAACP National Board of Directors. "Paris Barclay and Cheryl Boone Isaacs are to be recognized not only for their own remarkable achievements in the entertainment industry, but also for their respective roles in opening industry doors to filmmakers of color."

The NAACP Image Awards celebrates the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film and also honors individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors. Winners will be voted upon by NAACP members and announced when the envelopes are opened on Friday, February 21 during the Awards Ceremony for non-televised categories. The remaining categories will be announced LIVE on stage during the TV One telecast on Saturday, February 22. The live show will originate from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, Calif.
