The award is named in honor of John F. Bell Sr., who established successful businesses during the Jim Crow era when society at-large was neither welcoming nor supportive of Black-owned businesses.

Past award recipients include William Jones III, Hollie Lee, Eugene and Lorraine Williams, Forward Adelante Business Alliance, and Kaye Monroe.

The award is given to a person or organization that business and personal integrity; makes significant contributions in business diversity; is civically engaged; and helps develop minority entrepreneurs and business leaders. — Staff reportsf
