Commentator and host Lenny McAllister hints to the need for Black male leadership similar to the rise of Civil Rights leaders from the 1950s and 1960s.

PITTSBURGH CABLE NEWS CHANNEL (February 20, 2015): Political and social commentator Lenny McAllister (Host, “NightTalk: Get to the Point”) believes that for African-Americans and the United States overall to turn around, there is a need for Black male leadership to take their effectiveness to another standard and level.


I mentioned the need for an immediate black renaissance throughout Pittsburgh and America in order for our region and nation to fulfill its potential. That will only come about with a resurgence of successful black men in corporate America, the halls of academia, and the streets of a civil rights movement…”


McAllister uses his “Starting Point” commentary to highlight this need further during Black History Month 2015 during this clip from the February 20 episode of “Get To The Point” on the Pittsburgh Cable News Channel .


McAllister’s Get To The Point Panel this week included Dr. Waverly Duck of Pitt’s Center on Race and Social Problems, community activist and mentor Malcolm (Minnekhekh)Thomas , and Pittsburgh-based attorney Blaine Jones.
