WOLB Featured Video

Roland Martin, host of NewsOne Now, is not known to mince words or pull punches when setting someone straight.

Last week, Martin took his no bias, no bull fact-checking to the door of longtime TV host Wendy Williams. If you remember, Martin took her to task for her comments about Jesse Williams‘ BET Black Lives Matter speech, HBCUs, and the NAACP after a clip from her show went viral.

During commentary on his show, Martin implored Williams to leave certain topics alone because she sounded, well, silly, explaining that the NAACP was born out of the Niagara Movement and then said, “If you bothered to read something, you would realize that.”

On Thursday, Martin will have the opportunity to extend his history lesson during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, during which he will discuss the NAACP, HBCUs, and the nuances of race.

Be sure to watch The Wendy Williams Show Thursday. It should be one for the ages.
