Salute! Journalist Gil Noble Foundation Launched

26 Mar


Legendary interviewer’s daughter hopes to preserve 43 years of father’s work

The late black journalist Gil Noble has interviewed “everybody!” (Look back at his work highlighting issues concerning African Americans and the larger African Diaspora and you’ll see that’s not much of an exaggeration.) In that spirit, his daughter Lisa Noble has formed a foundation to preserve and manage the archival footage from the 43 years of work her father amassed as host of WABC’s “Like It Is.” Lisa Noble told The Amsterdam News that she is in the process of appointing a board to organize fundraisers and a business model for selling access to the archival footage. There will also be an educational arm of the foundation, run by Noble’s friends and fellow journalists. “That’s very important to me,” Lisa said. “That’s why people from all over the world want [the archival footage.] It is an African-American talking about his own history, and I would like it to come from other African-Americans.” (Amsterdam News)
