Awards will be given to outstanding African-Americans who set an inspirational example through community involvement and leadership in four categories: Arts & Culture; Business & Entrepreneurism; Community Service; and Education.
In honor of the achievers, JM Family, Southeast Toyota Distributors, and JM Lexus will donate $10,000 in each achiever’s name to the charity or charities of his/her choice.
