2023 Daytime Emmy Nominee for Outstanding Talk Series
Celebrating Black History Month! Ron Funches, Muni Long & More
February 14, 2023
February is Black History Month, and “The Jennifer Hudson Show” is committed to shining a light on the contributions and achievements of Black people throughout history. It’s a time to reflect, to honor, and to celebrate!
Here’s a few of the ways JHud and her guests are celebrating Black History Month!
“I try to celebrate every year by learning a new piece of Black history,” he told JHud. “I try to learn about people who have been around since I was a kid. Like Jerry Larson, who created the first video game cartridge.
“There’s new history every day!” he added. “Like, just recently at the Golden Globes, they had the first Black host in Jerrod Carmichael.”
JHud kicked off Black History Month with a very special mug reading “Black History 365.”
“Today is the first day of Black History Month,” she said on the February 1 show. “It should be 365 days a year!”
“Part of building the future is reflecting on the past,” she said. “That is why this month is so very important,” she said. “This is when we take time to remember those who came before us because if it was not for their sacrifices, we wouldn’t be here today.”
