In this season two premiere of “REVOLT BLACK NEWS,” Eboni K. Williams returns and takes a hard look at 2021 in Black Amerikkka — we know the year just started, but so much has already happened from the U.S. Capitol riots by Trump supporters, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris entering office and more!
Jeff Johnson also joins to help break down Inauguration Day. Tamika Mallory, Kimberly Jones, and Dr. Bernard Ashby spotlight the uphill battle with COVID-19, Black Lives Matter and Georgia’s historic Senate wins. And with awards season approaching, Valeisha Butterfield and Harvey Mason Jr. from The Recording Academy; and journalist Tanya Christian discuss diversity and inclusion in entertainment and media.
Inspired by Sean “Diddy” Combs’ successful “State Of Emergency: The State of Black America & Coronavirus” town hall, “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” is a platform that is designed to report news from the perspective of Black people, for Black people.
“When I started REVOLT, I always wanted to develop a platform to report the news from our perspective, from our lens, from our people, so I decided to launch ‘REVOLT BLACK NEWS.’” said Combs. “We’re here with solutions. We’ve already heard about what we can’t do, but this is what we can do.”
