Queen Latifah is set to take home the Entertainment Icon award at the upcoming American Black Film Festival Honors.
Queen, whose real name is Dana Owens, says she is honored to receive the award.
“It means so much to me coming from fellow entertainers and my peers.”
Queen Latifah hit the scene as a rapper almost three decades ago. Besides her Oscar nomination for “Chicago,” she’s also been nominated twice in Emmy acting categories and won a Golden Globe.
The American Black Film Festival Honors will air on BET and Centric at 8 p.m. EST on Feb. 22.
