Abstract:

Civil rights leader and broadcast executive Xernona Clayton was born August 30, 1930, in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Clayton earned her B.A. degree from Tennessee State University in 1952, and pursued graduate studies at the University of Chicago. Clayton began her career as an undercover investigator for the National Urban League in Chicago. In 1965, she moved to Atlanta and became a close confidante of Reverend Martin Luther King, Junior and Coretta Scott King. Clayton helped to organize marches and concert tours. She also contributed to the Doctors’ Committee for Implementation’s effort to desegregate Atlanta’s hospitals. In 1968, Clayton became the first black woman in the South to host a regularly scheduled prime time TV talk show on WAGA-TV. In 1988, Turner Broadcasting promoted Clayton assistant corporate vice-president for urban affairs. In 1993, Clayton created the Trumpet Awards to honor African American achievements.
