The award ceremony is a celebration of the “Outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts, as well as those individuals or groups who promote social justice through their creative endeavors.” For Jackie, her influence as a voice for colored women in the cosmetic industry makes her not only the YouTuber of The Year award but the very first person to ever win the award as the category has only been introduced this year. via GIPHY And she deserves it. Let’s be real: Nobody says it like Jackie and having the skill to criticize, empower and entertain at the same time is real talent. via GIPHY Jackie uses her make up videos on YouTube to not only teach women of color but, to also call out racism and promote diversity in the beauty industry. She accepted her award on Sunday and we can’t stop crushing on her gown for the night. First Oprah Winfrey at the Golden Globes and now Jackie, who’s actually of Nigerian decent: this is such a great way to start the year and we’re looking forward to seeing more women of color getting recognized for their work.
