For YEARS I’ve dreamed of going to nerd prom (B.K.A. “The White House Correspondents’ Dinner). This year, I at least got to go to MSNBC’s amazing nerd prom after party at the Italian Embassy as a correspondent for EBONY.com! And all the nerds and celebrities alike were in full force. Here’s a bit of my recap on EBONY.com:
EBONY caught up with Dave Chappelle, MSNBC hosts Tamron Hall and Al Sharpton, Michael Eric Dyson, Dancing with the Starswinner J.R. Martinez, and White House Adviser Valerie Jarrett at MSNBC’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner After Party – all of whom agreed that the highlight of the evening was President Obama’s speech. Even former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele confessed to EBONY that, though “Jimmy [Kimmel’s speech] was great, the President was just in his groove!”
Read the rest of my recap here. It’s hard to believe that only a week ago I was dancing the night away with Michael Eric Dyson, Tamron Hall, David Gregory and Michael Steele and escaping the ridiculous heat in the cigar tent with Dave Chappelle. This was definitely a life highlight. God is so good and He answers random prayers when you LEAST expect it! Never give up hope on the dreams God has placed in your heart!
Michael Eric Dyson
MSNBC Host Ed Schultz of The Ed Show
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz
Jeremy Bird (aka the guy who sends you all the Obama emails)
The host! Jimmy Kimmel
Chace Crawford AND Darren Criss were also there and I didn’t see them. *insert heartache* Ah well. Absolutely fun times!
