The 21st Annual NAACP Theatre Awards went down last night in Los Angeles where Raven-Symone received the Spirit Award for bringing energy, tenacity, innovation, commitment and talent to the local theater scene. (She starred in “Father’s Day” with Rosie Perez earlier this year).
The “Salute To Black Theatre” event also brought out Diahann Carroll, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award. The veteran actress is a Tony Award Winner, Emmy and Grammy Nominee, Golden Globe Winner, and Best Actress Oscar Nominee.
Host Niecy Nash and Wendy Raquel Robinson looked glamourous in white, while Jurnee Smollett and Jill Marie Jones wore brighter-hued frocks. Romeo, one of the few male attendees, of course, showed off his muscles on the red carpet.
