Updated : March 31, 2019 04:58 PM IST

Beyonce was named entertainer of the year at the NAACP Image Awards ceremony that highlighted works by entertainers and writers of color. After Beyonce accepted the award Saturday night, the superstar paid homage to the people who were nominated in the same category as her. She beat out LeBron James, Regina King, Chadwick Boseman and Ryan Coogler. Beyonce released a joint album last year with her husband, Jay-Z, called "Everything is Love." The prolific singer also paid tribute to historically black colleges and universities, as well as the dance troupes and step teams at HBCUs during her groundbreaking two-hour Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival performance.
