“Nightline” is set to air a condensed version of its 2.5 hour town hall meeting. A huge crowd gathered at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center in Decatur earlier this month on Friday, April 9. The show will air tonight on Nightline April 21 at 11:35 p.m. on ABC.
The moderator was none other than actor, comedian, and new author Steve Harvey. And “The View’s” Sherri Shepherd flew from New York City to take part as well. Vicki Mabrey, the “Nightline” correspondent moderated with Harvey, along with participants Jacque Reid (”Let’s Talk About Pep”), actor Hill Harper (”CSI: NY”) and author Jimi Israel (”The Denzel Principle”).
The show covered a burning topic looming within the minds of nearly every person who know. It focused on revealing the misconceptions each gender has about the other. It is no secret that the numbers are stacked against college-educated black women. The pool of comparable men is about half. Plus, many black women are unwilling to lower their standards while black men plead for more understanding.
