Established in 1988, the award was named in honor of the actress Rosetta LeNoire, who was also the first recipient, not only because of her body of work in the theatre – and her work with the then titled Actors' Equity Association's Ethnic Minorities Committee – but also for founding the AMAS Repertory Theatre Company
