If you had a TV talk show and you could have any five well known people as guests, living or dead, who would you book on the show?
My choices in no particular order
Jesus Christ: I'd like to ask him what he thinks of modern day Christianity and a few other questions for instance what he thinks of the same-gender marriage debate.
Prophet Muhammad: I'd like to ask him what he thinks of modern day Islam.
Harriet Tubman: I'd like to ask about her life in general and the Underground Railroad and about being a spy for the Union Army during the Civil War.
El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz: I'd like to ask him what he thinks of President Obama. And I'd like to know what he thinks of the progress African Americans have made in the last forty years.
Phyllis Hyman: I'd like to know about her life and why she decided to commit suicide. I'd also like to know what she thinks of modern R&B.
Alternates - Dorothy Dandridge, Billie Holiday and Queen Nefertiti.
