Pittsburgh (December 19, 2014) – (Pittsburgh Cable News Channel)

“If 2014 has taught us anything – it’s that there’s been an awful lot that’s gone on – and there’s an awful lot still to do. Every New Year’s Eve is a chance to reflect upon the biggest events that impacted our lives over the past year. Every New Year’s Day is a chance to envision that, indeed, the best is yet to come. However, both are opportunities to remember that everyday is the best day to be historic, stay focused, have meaning, do good, and always believe. The lesson of 2014? Let’s not waste one day in 2015.

 

Catch Lenny’s “Starting Point” as he gives his thoughts to kick off the year-end GTTP Special with the Get To The Point Panel (Vibrant Pittsburgh CEO Melanie Harrington, WPXI Anchor Damany Lewis, and PCNC Host of “NightTalk” Ellis Cannon) on the Year-End special of “NightTalk: Get to the Point” on the Pittsburgh Cable News Channel Fridays at 8pm, Sundays at 10pm, and Mondays at 5pm.

Starting Point (December 5, 2014): “NightTalk: Get to the Point”

In Speeches, Video on December 7, 2014 at 1:18 pm
“Are we willing to make this moment about police treatment in urban areas or understand that these tragedies are a symptom of the dual expectations found in the employment, economics, education, healthcare, and criminal justice systems of America?”

“Are we willing to make this moment about police treatment in urban areas or understand that these tragedies are a symptom of the dual expectations found in the employment, economics, education, healthcare, and criminal justice systems of America?”

PITTSBURGH (December 5, 2014) – (Pittsburgh Cable News Channel)

Generally, people are willing to champion popular civil rights rhetoric from the past yet few are willing to mustard true civil rights courage for today. Perhaps that trend is changing now – before more people are harassed, assaulted, and harmed by a system that calls us all equal on paper, but only on paper. The mighty pen can call us equal – but only a mighty people and a just people can make it so.”

Catch Lenny’s “Starting Point” as he gives his thoughts before talking with the Get To The Point Panel (joined by Dr. Jason Johnson, Jasiri X, and The Rev. Ricky Burgess) concerning the concerns and protests that continue to rise throughout the nation.
