From Executive Producers Harold and Hattie Bell, SPEAK THE TRUTH is a virtual talk show hosted by Black Men In America.com on the ZOOM platform. The show was launched with a rock-solid foundation starting with National Association of Black Journalist (NABJ) 2020 Pioneer Award winner and Washington, DC area talk show sports legend Harold Bell.
Facilitated by Black Men In America.com Publisher/Founder, Gary Johnson, “SPEAK THE TRUTH” talks about “hot topics” and the current events on the minds of folks in our community and across the nation.
Today’s show opened with a conversation about a classic video featuring rapper Lil’ Nas X and country singer Billy Ray Cyrus at the 2019 BET Awards show and the impact that Lil’ Nas X has on young children. Harold and his guest James “Jim” Blount also talk about Harold’s friendship with former Boston Celtics legend Red Aurebach and the distinction between racist behavior from some citizens and the team. The show ended on a “feel good” story about kittens and the mention of 102 year-old Aunt Elaine.
