Trumpet Awards is the annual award show which honors the accomplishments of black Americans. The Trumpet Awards were started in 1993 as a presentation of Turner Broadcasting, but are now presented by The Trumpet Awards Foundation, Inc. The Awards were created to honor black Americans who have accomplished great things against huge odds, giving recognition to those who have overcome racism, poverty and more to achieve greatness. The goal of the awards is to inspire, educate, stimulate and enlighten the community by showing that success can be achieved by people of any race or gender. The awards honor those who have no only achieved for themselves, but inspire achievement in others. Previous honorees have included Muhammad Ali, Maya Angelou, Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., Nat "King" Cole and Tiger Woods, amongst many other legendary figures. Tune in to see some inspiring stories from inspiring figures in the black community as they are honored in the annual Trumpet Awards.
