Paris Barclay, Cheryl Boone Isaacs to Be Inducted into NAACP Hall of Fame

The DGA and Academy prexies will be honored at the NAACP Image Awards on Feb. 22

Paris Barclay and Cheryl Boone Isaacs will be inducted into the NAACP Hall of Fame at the 45th Annual Image Awards.

The awards, which will air on TV One live at 9 p.m. on Feb. 22 from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, celebrate the accomplishments of people of color in TV, film, music and literature. Winners are voted upon by NAACP members.

Barclay and Boone Isaacs are the first African-American presidents of the Directors Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, respectively. Boone Isaacs is the third woman in the Academy’s history to hold the post.

Barclay, a double NAACP Image Awards recipient, also has two Emmys, one DGA Award and three Peabody Awards under his belt. He’s currently directing “Glee” and “The Good Wife.” He also helmed eps of “Sons of Anarchy” from 2008-2013, taking on an exec producer title in the final two years. Before he worked in TV, Barclay was a music video director and a copywriter.

“As a director and the father of two young sons, I am inspired by the NAACP’s continued efforts to recognize artists and leaders striving for a positive impact on the world, and I am humbled to join the ranks of those who have been honored before me,” Barclay said in a press release.

Before Boone Isaacs became Academy prexy last year, she worked in its public relations branch for 21 years. She currently heads CBI Enterprises, Inc., where she consulted on the marketing behind “The Artist,” “The King’s Speech” and “Spider-Man 2.” She was also pres of theatrical marketing for New Line Cinema and exec VP of worldwide publicity for Paramount Pictures.

“I’m a longtime admirer of the NAACP Image Awards and the work they’ve done to promote diversity and inclusiveness in the entertainment industry, and I couldn’t be more proud to be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” Boone Isaacs said in a press release.
