Black + Iconic with Queen Latifah: HBCU Students Celebrate the Best of Black History
In 2023, Queen Latifah became the first woman in rap to be honored by the Kennedy Center. But that was after a career that took young Dana Owens from humble beginnings in East Orange, N.J., to the top of the hip-hop charts, then to movies, television and international stardom. She was also granted the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2021 BET Awards. Her success has inspired a generation of women in music and entertainment and has served as beacon for fellow artists like Lizzo, Rapsody, Megan Thee Stallion. Fun fact: Latifah was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in 2003’s Chicago, and won a Golden Globe for her role in 2008’s Life Support.
