    Xernona Clayton and the Trumpet Awards

    in Entrepreneur

    Xernona Clayton is the Founder, President and CEO of the Trumpet Awards Foundation, Inc. and Creator and Executive Producer of the Foundation’s Trumpet Awards.  The Trumpet Awards is a prestigious event highlighting African American accomplishments and contributions.  Initiated in 1993 by Turner Broadcasting, the Trumpet Awards has been televised annually and distributed internationally to over 185 countries around the world.

    Ms. Clayton began her television career in 1967 and became the south’s first Black person to have her own television show.  The Xernona Clayton show was a regular feature on WAGA-TV, CBS affiliate in Atlanta.

    Xernona Clayton was employed at Turner Broadcasting for nearly 30 years where she served as a corporate executive.  In 1988, Xernona Clayton was appointed Corporate Vice President for Urban Affairs with Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.

    Xernona moved to Atlanta in 1965 where she accepted a position with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and worked closely with the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Her persistent fight against the dragons of prejudice and bigotry was never more apparent than in 1968, when the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan denounced the Klan and credited Xernona’s influence with his change.

    Upon the announcement of Xernona’s appointment as the first Black female corporate executive, Ted Turner said, “Xernona has an impressive record of accomplishments and we are proud to recognize her commitment to bettering human relations with this promotion.”

    And The Emmy/Oscar goes to....

    in Entertainment

    This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will discuss the plight of the black actor and actress in Hollywood. Did Viola Davis hit the nail on the head at the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Do actors of color have less opportunity than their white counterparts? After all these years and a black president in the white house, why are we still dealing with unequal opportunity in Hollywood? How do we change this? Is it that America, including black folks, don't care to see blacks on tv or the big screen? We've invited some black actors to the show to help us understand this. You won't want to miss a minuite of this. Lets talk about it here on The Fruit.
