Queen Latifah has accomplished an incredible amount over the course of her decades-long career, all while doing it with integrity and respect.
And she will be honored for her contributions to African American culture and black history by Harvard University with the prestigious W.E.B. Du Bois Medal.
It’s the highest honor bestowed by their African and African American Studies department given to recipients not only for their contributions to culture, but also "the life of the mind" all which makes Latifah a perfect choice.
She will receive the medal alongside six other well-deserving honorees on October 22nd.
