To be held at the Rave Cinemas in LA’s Baldwin Hills section at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza, the event will also include honors for Meagan Good for the Beah Richards Rising Star Actress Award, Leon Garr for Community Treasure Award, and Van Vicker for the African Channel Creative Achievement Award.
Devine will take home the most appropriate token of the night, the Lifetime Achievement Award for her work on stage, television and film.
“Ms. Devine is probably one of the hardest working women in show business,” said Ayuko Babu, founder and executive director of the Pan African Film Festival. “She is an extremely gifted and versatile actress, creating soulful characters in some of our favorite televisions shows and films.”
He added, “Through her craft, she is an amazing storyteller, delivering memorable performances and portraying characters with a richness and vulnerability that connects with audience on many different levels.”
The Night of Tribute will take place at 8 p.m. on Friday Feb. 10.
