Nikole Hannah-Jones & Ta-Nehisi Coates Join Howard University This Fall


  1. America is in crisis right now. A lot of people want to help, but have no idea where to start. As we look for meaningful and lasting solutions, there is a lot to learn and unlearn.

    1. @Bill Rodriguez = what happens when you close the asylums and decide to just send the “too mentally ill to work” money every month on the taxpayers’ dime instead.

    2. @Margeaux Jenkins “muh republican razist bcuz voter ID” give me a break. Uniparty wants open voting so there can never be a legitimate election again

    1. Silence, you crying azz people has never been silent about anything, always crying that everyone owes you , it was not today’s generation that has seen racist or segregated or slavery, the only thing that today’s generation of black Americans have experienced is the same any other american has suffered through

    2. So is this the new tagline to justify burning and looting our cities? I’ve had to hear their complains nonstep for years as the news keeps putting them up on a pedestal despite how unsubstantial their arguments are consistently.

  2. If you overachieve you’re frowned upon, if you underachieve you’re frowned upon.

    1. These 2 demanded tenure without having gained tenure through hard work at the university.
      An unknown entity agreed to pay them both 10 million dollars to stop demanding tenure.

  3. I miss the Black Institutes like Hampton Institute and Tuskegee Institute. Colleges (H.B.C.U.) and universities are based on a white federally founded system. Hampton Roads, VA. (2 up 2 down) Duces also known as DuceVille.

  4. Great interview, Tiffany. I can’t wait to see what comes next for these two great journalists and their partnerships with HBCUs. Thanks for this! (I’m feeling uplifted.)

  5. The way that Unc did her proves the very point of critical race theory and how it is very much active in society for blacks today

  6. I would be nice to get these posted earlier and labeled for the time they were aired not just the time posted.

    1. They demanded tenure without having gained tenure through hard work at the university.
      An unknown entity agreed to pay them both 10 million dollars to stop demanding tenure.

    2. “We have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” —-> Little Gurl Sniffer!
      YouTube can S-H-O-W-B-A-N My Comments but they CAN’T HIDE FACTS!!!

  7. Fantastic segment. I’d love to take both their classes. Those will be lucky/fortunate students.

  8. Thank you for sharing this video featuring two of my favorite people. I wish I could attend Howard University just so I could take classes taught by Nikole Hannah-Jones and TaNehesi Coates.

  9. Wisdom, insight, reason, intelligence:
    In a 1852 speech titled, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” former slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass stated:

    Fellow Citizens, I am not wanting in respect for the fathers of this republic. The signers of the Declaration of Independence were brave men. They were great men too — great enough to give fame to a great age. It does not often happen to a nation to raise, at one time, such a number of truly great men. The point from which I am compelled to view them is not, certainly, the most favorable; and yet I cannot contemplate their great deeds with less than admiration. They were statesmen, patriots and heroes, and for the good they did, and the principles they contended for, I will unite with you to honor their memory.

    They loved their country better than their own private interests; and, though this is not the highest form of human excellence, all will concede that it is a rare virtue, and that when it is exhibited, it ought to command respect. He who will, intelligently, lay down his life for his country, is a man whom it is not in human nature to despise. Your fathers staked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, on the cause of their country. In their admiration of liberty, they lost sight of all other interests.

    They were peace men; but they preferred revolution to peaceful submission to bondage. They were quiet men; but they did not shrink from agitating against oppression. They showed forbearance; but that they knew its limits. They believed in order; but not in the order of tyranny. With them, nothing was “settled” that was not right. With them, justice, liberty and humanity were “final;” not slavery and oppression. You may well cherish the memory of such men. They were great in their day and generation. Their solid manhood stands out the more as we contrast it with these degenerate times.

  10. Good for Nikole Hannah-Jones going to teach journalism at Howard University. She’s very kind and historically engaged. Thanks for this on Sunday. Yup!

  11. Confirmation: I can go to my rest Knowing We’re in Good Hands
    “Fight_On – Right On – Power To The People!”

  12. They’re still bringing down confederate statues in 2021 but they have an issue with 1619 and crt. Ok.
