In honor of Black History Month, NBJC Executive Director Sharon Lettman-Hicks appeared on Sheila Alexander-Reid Live, hosted by D.C. activist Sheila Alexander-Reid. Lettman-Hicks discussed the state of the Black LGBT movement, Obama's inaugural address, Bayard Rustin's legacy and more. Sheila Alexander-Reid Live is D.C.'s only LGBT FM radio show. The program offers an LGBT perspective on an array of topics. 

While at the helm of NBJC, Sharon Lettman-Hicks has spoken out for LGBT equality on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Black Enterprise, and on the Hill. She is not afraid to take on members of the African American clergy and any other places where she finds homophobia.
