Larry Wilmore Reveals His Strategy for Covering Race on ‘The Nightly Show’

On diversity:
People ask me, “How is your team so diverse?” Because that’s what I wanted. My mission from the beginning was to find people from different backgrounds and hire an eclectic team.


On his duty to cover race issues:

I’ll be honest with you, I remember thinking, I may as well be the one covering this sort of thing and be honest about it, be direct about it and let the chips fall where they may.


On making the show universal:

We look at our show as illuminating issues that should be important to everybody. We come from the viewpoint of the underdog.
