“The Real” Comes to Howard University In Honor of Black History Month

Howard University students got a chance to weigh in on some hot topics Wednesday as they appeared as part of a studio audience on the popular daytime talk show “The Real.”

Washington, D.C. (February 6th, 2019)  – The popular daytime talk show “The Real” took part of its show on the road Wednesday and to the campus of Howard University.  Howard students got a chance to participate as part of a live studio audience via satellite.   In honor of Black History Month, “The Real” is traveling to HBCUs throughout the month of February.  Howard, “The Mecca” was first up on the road trip.  The hosts are spreading the message as to why HBCUs are so important to our history and our future.

The hosts, Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley asked the students to weigh in on “multi-dating,” and if it’s cool to do, which co-hosts Jeannie Mai and Loni Love agree it is, as long as everyone is on the same page. They also discussed Jennifer Lopez’s rumored participation in a Motown tribute at the upcoming Grammy Awards, and Cory Booker running for President as a single man.

The ladies also spoke with the president of Howard University, Dr. Wayne A. I. Frederick, and played Ante Up with three lucky students, Kayla Waysome, Lauren Myers and Nazeer Jeffries. And student Brandon Allen played a Hotline Bling emoji paddle game with all four hosts!

The show aired on Wednesday, February 6th @ 11amET on local Fox5.
