The 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards are back and scheduled to take place here in Atlanta on January 24th at the Cobb Center Galleria hosted by Boxer/Tv Personality Laila Ali and Actor Dolvett Quince. I have always enjoyed attending their star-studded affair and plan on going again next year. Check out the honorees and more info inside!
About The Trumpet Awards…
Black men and women are a valuable resource to this country. Their contributions and accomplishments, including the part they play to ensure the continued vitality of the nation’s economy, have become increasingly evident.
Originally presented by Turner Broadcasting in 1993 and now presented by the Trumpet Awards Foundation, Inc., the Trumpet Awards were created to herald the accomplishments of Black Americans who have succeeded against immense odds. Special recognition is given to the few, who symbolize the many, who have overcome the ills of racism and poverty and achieved special greatness.
The past award presentations have been very successful and the future productions will continue to enhance the level of excellence created by the first Trumpet Awards.
Honorees this year include:
Arnold W. Donald
Dr. Valerie Montgomery Rice
Franklyn R Wilson CMG
