Bree Newsome to Speak out on 'Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore'
Bree Newsome will make her first television appearance tonight since climbing a flagpole to take down the Confederate flag at the South Carolina Capitol last week. Newsome is scheduled to appear on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore tonight on Comedy Central. Considering Wilmore's statements on Newsome's actions—"If you want something done, wait around and do nothing until a kick--s Black woman comes along and does that s--t for you…What she did was amazing"—we have a feeling that the segment is going to be good.
