Spike Lee, Ben Crump And Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Honored At Triumph Awards

It’s become one of the most anticipated civil rights awards programs of the year.
A litany of stars gathered Sept. 18 at the Tabernacle Theater in Atlanta for the Triumph Awards, a joint venture by National Action Network and TV One to recognize distinguished individuals and corporations in civil rights, the arts, entertainment, education, business and sports who have made a positive impact on society by utilizing their talents and resources to help underresourced communities.

Actress Tichina Arnold hosted the ceremony for the second year in a row, and a star-studded list of entertainers from Nick Cannon and Eric Benet to Fantasia and Joe gave rousing performances in a taped two-hour ceremony that was broadcasted on TV One on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016, at 7 p.m. EDT.
National Action Network—the civil rights group founded in 1991 by Sharpton—presented awards to music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, filmmaker Spike Lee, attorney Benjamin Crump, FedEx executive Gina Davis and producer Jermaine Dupri. MasterCard received the Corporate Partner of the Year Award.
Now in its seventh year, the annual awards ceremony was also designed to encourage viewers to engage in the electoral process by casting their vote in November’s presidential election. The program included a moving segment that featured some of the “Mothers of the Movement,” including the moms of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
