This is the pilot episode of a weekly news program Tallis Piaget is launching called The Black News Hour. It will be something comparable to the daily show with news stories regarding Black America. The first 20-25 minutes is the news, the last 30 minutes is a discussion. I hope you find it informative and entertaining. Remember this is the first episode so a perfect presentation isn't apparent yet. The show will definitely improve as we continue to grow. Constructive criticism, important stories, guest, and other ideas are welcomed. Featuring author and host Tallis Piaget, writer and journalist Sylvester Brown, Jr. and our founder, social activist and writer Tarrell Rodney Campbell.
