On Saturday, October 24, 2020, at 6:00 P.M, the NAACP State Conference Awards will recognize nationally acclaimed excellence in athletics, public policy, social activism, entertainment, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and leadership at Monticello, 2000 Powers Ferry Rd, Marietta, GA 30067.
This is a collaborative effort of the Louisiana and Georgia Conferences of the NAACP.

Derek King, Nghana Lewis, Cynthia Willard-Lewis, Raheem DeVaughn, Porsha Williams, Yandy Smith, and Isaac Farris.
The NAACP Louisiana State Conference Award Honorees are individuals who have demonstrated a commitment of their lives, their voices, and their resources to the mission of the NAACP. Michael McClanahan, President of the NAACP Louisiana State Conference submits, “Our honorees have their hands to the plow. They are engaged in community, armed in knowledge, and marked by service and selflessness.” The NAACP’s history of excellence in action is lived through their experience and their dedication to the core values; all of which are just as relevant, poignant, and essential to advancement in the 21st century as they were at its inception in 1909.
The evening will be a star-studded affair hosted by Dr. Lexy star of OWN TV’s Ready to Love Season One and Chris Cole, Atlanta Social Influencer. Show organizers Byron Clay of ABC Productions and Janet Jackson of Boss Chix ATL have assembled an unforgettable evening of entertainment complete with musical tributes by Case, 112, Tony Terry, and Dave Tolliver.
