The Trumpet Awards were created in 1993 to honor African-American achievement in diverse fields such as law, religion, politics, public service, sports and entertainment. 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 society by promoting the cause of justice and equality of all.

Originally presented by Turner Broadcasting and now managed by the Trumpet Awards Foundation, the Trumpet Awards honors people who are viewed not only for what they have individually achieved but also for the achievement they inspire in others. During the past 20 years, the Trumpet Awards have honored Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, Henry "Hank" Aaron, Gordon Parks, Lena Horne, Dr. Benjamin Carson, Sen. Ed Brooke, and many others.

The Trumpet Awards are produced by Central City Productions for TV One. Executive producers are Xernona Clayton and Don Jackson. Executive in charge of production for TV One is Craig Henry.
