Black culture is world culture.

Juneteenth is more than a celebration of African American freedom in the United States. Juneteenth is a celebration of Black excellence, advancement, and achievement. In honor of the national holiday, the 30th Anniversary Bounce Trumpet Awards aired Juneteenth, Sunday, June 19, at 7 p.m. ET. Her Agenda attended the taping of the award show at the historic Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California earlier this year.

“It’s fitting that we will honor Black excellence and achievement on a day that is a commemoration of such a significant moment in our history as African Americans,” said Cheryle Harrison, head of Bounce.

On the red carpet proceeding the event, Trumpet Awards founder Xernona Clayton, spoke of the historical significance of the award show and the contagious joy that filled the theatre among the dynamic honorees, performers, and attendees.

“Good stories, wonderful contributions of African Americans, that’s what I’m hoping for tonight,” Clayton told Her Agenda.

The 2022 Bounce Trumpet Awards honored Courtney B. Vance (Excellence in Entertainment Award), Stan Lathan (Living Legend Award), Zaila Avant-garde (Rising Star Award), Raphael Warnock, and Jon Ossoff (Xernona Clayton Award of Distinction), Princess Sarah Culberson (Impact Award). In addition to public figures, several leading business professionals and executives were in attendance including Forbes 50 Champion and 2022 Woman of The Year Tamaira “Miss Tee” Sandifer.

When asked what advice she would share with Her Agenda’s readers, Sandifer spoke of the necessity of perseverance.

“You have dreams, goals [and] desires,” Sandifer said. “Don’t quit. Never let them go and don’t be moved by time. Whatever you’re doing, it’s a process and the process is designed to build the woman, not get you to a destination, so as long as you are building you, wherever you land, you will succeed.”
