"Like It Is" Host Gil Noble Dead At 80 -

"Like It Is" Host Gil Noble Dead At 80 -

I heard this man speak and I met him during my orientation at Hunter College (C.U.N.Y.). Seeing him that day, in September of 1971, changed my life. He was the second African American news anchor on New York television. He showed me, in contradiction to my mothers teachings, that you did not have to adopt the assimilationist (proper Negro) model to succeed. I will be eternally grateful to him for that lesson.
