At the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, Tracee Ellis Ross took home the award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Black-ish matriarch Rainbow Johnson.

During her speech, the actress thanked the cast and crew of the series and then shared inspiring words about the trailblazing Black women telling our stories.

Quoting Audre Lorde, Ross said, “We too often have been expected to be all things to all people and to speak everyone else’s position but our very own.”

“Our experiences and stories are way too often told through interpreters,” Ross continued, “And history, systems, and laws have told us we need a man’s voice or power to name our existence, to validate our experiences. That we need a son to carry on a legacy, to etch our impact in time. But we get to define ourselves, not through how others imagine us, but through how we see ourselves. Even if our truth makes you uncomfortable.”

Ross went on to name women like Jill Scott, Yara Shahidi, Tiffany Haddish, Logan Browning, Ava DuVernay, Issa Rae, Janelle Monáe, and more as women who are blazing a trail and inspiring others to share their stories.

The actress also added that she’s “humbled to learned from the legacies” of women like Lena Horne, Cicely Tyson, Moms Mabley, Ruby Dee, Diahann Carroll, Maxine Waters, Nina Simone, and her mother, Diana Ross.

“I love being a part of this ever-growing chorus of Black women owning our own legacies.”

This was originally posted on https://www.essence.com/entertainment/rihanna-call-to-action-inspiring-naacp-speech/ along with the image used.

Rihanna is calling for unity across “races, sexes, and religions” to tackle the issues facing the world.

On Saturday, the beauty mogul was honored with the NAACP Image Awards‘ 2020 President’s Award, issuing a call to action for allies “to pull up” and work alongside one another to create change.

“Tonight is not really about me, because the purpose is bigger than me, right? It’s not bigger than us together, but it’s bigger than me, because my part is a very small part of the work that is being done in this world and the work that is yet to be done,” the singer said.

“If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that we can only fix this world together. We can’t do it divided. I can not emphasize that enough. We can’t let the desensitivity seep in.”

Rihanna continued, “The ‘If it’s your problem, then it’s not mine.’ ‘It’s a woman’s problem.’ ‘It’s a black people problem.’ ‘It’s a poor people problem.’ How many of us in this room have colleagues and partners and friends from other races, sexes, religions? Show of hands? They want to break bread with you, right? They like you? Well then, this is their problem too. So when we’re marching and protesting and posting about the Michael Brown Jrs and the Atatiana Jeffersons of the world, tell your friends to pull up.”

The singer is known for funding philanthropic projects through the Clara Lionel Foundation, which she founded in 2012 to support “education and emergency response programs around the world.” The foundation raises millions every year through Rihanna’s Diamond Ball gala.

Derrick Johnson, President and CEO of the NAACP, previously called the singer is “a stellar public servant,” adding in a statement, “Rihanna epitomizes the type of character, grace, and devotion to justice that we seek to highlight in our President’s Award.”

“My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time,” she wrote in a post shared to social media. “Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri…We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon.”
