We are seeking nominations of African Americans who have shown real leadership and serve as an advocate for African American youth, men and the community whenever the opportunity presented itself.

 

The goal of the Sons Of Bransford or SOB Awards is to recognize Black men and now womenthat have had a positive impact on the social conditions of the community and the lives of individuals through their quiet and not so quiet leadership. That deserves to be given honor and recognition in celebration of their achievements in spite of their trials and tribulations that others can draw strength, courage and hope from them as peaceful warriors. In the spirit of the award namesake Jim Bransford like him who are worthy of receiving their flowers while they can still smell them!
