Tonight’s episode of Soul of a Nation will focus on the Black Church, as well as the intersection of faith and abortion and examine the role of forgiveness in the Black community. During an interview with ABC News’ Linsey Davis, Nick Cannon will distinguish the difference between apology and atonement, saying, “I’m not seeking forgiveness. I’m seeking for growth.”
Cannon came under fire in 2020 for making anti-Semitic remarks during an interview with Richard Griffin, better known as Professor Griff, on his podcast and YouTube show Cannon’s Class. ViacomCBS fired Cannon from his improv series Wild ’N Out, and he later apologized for the comments. On tonight’s episode of Soul of a Nation, Davis asks Cannon about reports he was forced to apologize. Take a look at the interview below.
The third episode of Soul of a Nation will be hosted by BeBe Winans and will feature a special musical performance with Anthony Hamilton. In addition, Sunny Hostin, Byron Pitts, Deborah Roberts, David Scott, Charles Blow, and others will also participate in the episode that will also feature a conversation with Botham Jean’s family and two of the survivors of the Mother Emanuel mass shooting in Charleston.
Soul of a Nation airs Tuesdays on ABC at 10 p.m. ET. Episodes are also available on demand and Hulu the next day.
