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. Xernona Clayton created the Trumpet Awards Foundation and International Civil Rights Walk of Fame to honor the achievements of African Americans and civil rights advocates. Clayton has been honored by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the city of Atlanta for her work.
