About The Trumpet Awards
Black men and women are a valuable resource to this country and the world at large. 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 humanitarians who have succeeded against immense odds. Special recognition is given to the few, symbolic of the many, who have overcome the ills of racism and poverty and achieved greatness.
2017 introduces a new chapter for The Trumpet Awards. Through a recent agreement with the Trumpet Awards Foundation, Bounce has acquired all assets for the venerable awards and is squarely poised to continue the ongoing legacy of this event.
The annual Trumpet Awards acknowledges the accomplishments of men and women who have significantly contributed to enhancing the quality of life for all…individuals and/or groups who augment the richness of this great global society by partnering with the cause of justice and equality of all.
To inspire, educate, stimulate and enlighten human minds to the reality that success, achievement and respect are void of color and gender.
Men and women who, through consistency and longevity, have achieved success in a chosen profession or career are eligible for consideration. Potential honorees are those persons who are viewed not only for what they have individually achieved but also for the achievement they inspire in others.
