It was a packed house for Gil Noble's public wake at Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, NY on April 12, 2012. Everyone including family, friends, colleagues and fans turned out to celebrate Gil Noble, the longtime host and producer of his groundbreaking and famous weekly news show, Like It Is. Noble's show was truly Pan-African focusing on the black experience on a local, national and international level.
We at All Things Harlem salute Gil Noble and continue to be inspired and influenced by him.
