Rihanna Receives Prestigious NAACP President’s Award
CLF founder, Rihanna, asked fans and audience members to “tell your friends to pull up” in her acceptance speech at the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, February 22.
“I’m lucky I was able to start the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012,” she said. “And if there’s anything that I’ve learned, it’s that we can only fix this world together. We can’t do it divided."
In receiving the organization’s prestigious President’s Award, in recognition of her business and public service achievements, Rihanna provoked the audience with a call for unity and action that went viral overnight.
