The Reverend Jamal Harrison Bryant, senior pastor and founder of The Empowerment Temple, and also a graduate of HBCU Morehouse College in Atlanta, joins associate pastor John Gray, Dr. E. Dewey Smith Jr. and Pastor Orrick Quick on a new daytime talk show called The Preachers that is unlike anything else in TV.
The show premiered last week.
From Madame Noire:
“In its debut episode, The Preachers sat down with actress, comedian and former co-host of The View Sherri Shepherd to learn more about her new role on the NBC comedy Trial & Error. During their time together, the hosts asked Shepherd how she feels raising a special-needs Black son in a social climate where police brutality runs rampant. Shepherd’s response allowed for both herself and the hosts to touch upon the tragic deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and the five Dallas police officers who were killed by a sniper during a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest. Here’s a small taste of that discussion [above].”
According to Fox News, The Preachers “offer spiritual take on today’s topics” and the TV station currently has the talk show set up on a three week test run.
