We have lost yet another giant this week in the form of Gil Noble. Noble was a luminary in NY journalism and a tireless advocate for the Black community as a whole. Noble was intelligent, insightful, poised and most importantly confident enough to let his guests shine as the stars of the show. Whether it was Lena Horne or a drug addict Noble afforded the same level of respect and genuine interest to both.
It was truly an honor and a privilege to grow up watching LIKE IT IS and I know an entire generation is the better for having shared this experience.
I only wished Gil Noble had the opportunity to get the proper accolades in life that he truly deserved.
My prayers go out to his loved ones.
