Announced during the live 54th Annual NAACP Image Awards virtual nomination broadcast, the viral YouTube animated children’s program “Gracie’s Corner” has been nominated for the 2023 NAACP Image Award for Oustanding Animated Series.

Created during the height of the pandemic when then 7-year-old Graceyn (now 10) and her siblings had difficulty finding diverse content to watch on television or online during homeschooling. Gracie’s parents, Javoris Hollingsworth, Ph.D., a Chemistry Professor & Arlene Gordon-Hollingsworth, Ph.D., a licensed Clinical Psychologist, decided to take matters into their own hands and create what was missing, and Gracie’s Corner TV was born.

Among the top culturally relevant children’s programs on YouTube, Gracie’s Corner content generates over 80 million monthly views and has 1.3M subscribers. In addition, the brand has become a perennial leader on major social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram, where viral video hashtags show almost 200M views combined.

“Gracie’s Corner is a cultural phenomenon, and we are humbled, honored, and so proud that so many people can relate to our songs and the mission of Gracie’s Corner. We are completely blown away and excited about being nominated for this prestigious award. It means so much to our family to be recognized by the NAACP and our fantastic community.”
Javoris “Jay” Hollingsworth – Creator, Gracie’s Corner
