VH1 Special:: Out in Hip Hop

Panelists include: Milan Christopher; Rap Icon, Daryl McDaniels (DMC) of Run DMC; Big Freedia; and Sharon Lettman-Hicks, NBJC’s Executive Director/CEO.

Tonight, VH1 will present “LHH: Out in Hip Hop” at 11PM ET/PT, an hour-long roundtable discussion celebrating being out in the hip hop community and posing the question: Is hip hop homophobic?

Moderated by ABC News’ T.J. Holmes, the open dialogue will include a studio audience that has been touched by the Miles and Milan story line. They will be joined by artists and cultural experts speaking candidly on homophobia within the hip hop industry.
The panelists include a diverse lineup of talent from various backgrounds and experiences, including television and radio personalities, hip hop artists, film producers, writers, activists and religious leaders within American pop-culture and the LGBT community. NBJC is excited to announce that our very own Sharon J. Lettman-Hicks is one of the featured guests for the VH1 Special: “LHH: OUT IN HIP HOP” premiering tonight, October 19th, at 11pm ET/PT.
