      Taraji would really deserve it. Can’t wait to see Janelle Monae get meatier roles. She glowed onscreen during Hidden Figures and Moonlight.

    It would have been nice for some of these artist that promote Black Rights to show up at the Image Awards. If only black awards where given the same respect as the AMA’s and Grammy’s…..smh Very telling man..
