Created by Michael Dockery, president of Telecast Media Group, the Stomp the City Iconic Awards are envisioned as a tool to heighten awareness about and raise funds to help local nonprofits combat gun violence, domestic violence and other Memphis social ills.

Addressing such problems, particularly gun violence, does not always start with elected officials or in the church said Dockery in a recent interview.

“We’ve got to address gun violence in our homes,” said Dockery.

The honored guests included Lisa Raye (Iconic Silver Screen Award), Clifton Powell (Iconic Lifetime Achievement Award) and Vickie Winans.

Among the performers featured at the gala event were Ruff Endz, Troupe, Hi-Five and Sir Charles, Trillville, Gangsta Black and Lil G from the R&B group Silk.
