  • HEY EVERYBODY, WELCOME BACK TO "A LATE SHOW."

  • LET'S SAY HELLO TO JON BATISTE.

  • JON, I'M DIGGING THAT SUIT HARD.

  • WHAT IS THAT PATTERN?

  • >> Jon: THIS IS A DESIGN BY MY FRIEND KIRBY.

  • HE MADE AND AND I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT THE INSPIRATION IS,

  • BUT I'M DIGGING IT, TOO.

  • AMAZING.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S NOT A REPRESENTATIONAL PATTERN.

  • THAT'S AN ABSTRACT?

  • >> Jon: YES, YOU SEE...

  • GOT A NICE LITTLE-- THAT HAS A COLOR PALETTE TO IT, TOO.

  • GOT A NICE FEEL.

  • >> Stephen: I THINK IT LOOKS BETTER ON YOU THAN IT WOULD ON

  • ME.

  • I DON'T THINK I HAVE THE STYLE TO SUSTAIN IT.

  • >> Jon: OH, MY GOODNESS.

  • >> Stephen: YOU KNOW WHO ELSE WHAT MIGHT LOOK GOOD ON, ARSENIO

  • HALL?

  • YOU ARE NOT OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER HIS SHOW.

  • YOU WERE NOT ALIVE WHEN HIS SHOW CAME ON, RIGHT?

  • >> Jon: I REMEMBER HIS SHOW.

  • I REMEMBER SEEING IT-- I DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS RERUNS OR NOT,

  • BUT I REMEMBER HIS SHOW IN MY HOUSEHOLD.

  • >> Stephen: YOU KNOW THIS, YOU KNOW THIS, THIS IS AN AMERICAN

  • STANDARD.

  • >> Jon: YES, YES,.

  • THERE WERE A LOT OF GREAT MOMENTS ON THAT SHOW.

  • THE MOMENT MIKE TYSON AND MOHAMMED ALI WERE ON THERE

  • TOGETHER.

  • I REMEMBER SEEING THAT, AND THERE WERE SOME OTHER MOMENTS

  • WHERE THERE WOULD BE SO MANY TITANS TO SHOW UP TO GREET

  • ANOTHER TITANS AND WOULD BE SURPRISED.

  • HE WOULD ALWAYS HAVE SOMEBODY COMING OUT THE BACK.

  • I REMEMBER THAT.

  • I LOVED THAT.

  • >> Stephen: JON, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO PLAY FOR US

  • TONIGHT?

  • >> Jon: OH, MY GOODNESS, LET'S GET A VIBE OF...

  • ♪ ♪ >> Stephen: THAT'S QUITE

  • SOOTHING.

  • THANK YOU, JON.

  • JON BATISTE, EVERYBODY.

  • AS I HOPE YOU KNOW, FEBRUARY IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH. AND EVEN

  • THOUGH IT ONLY LASTS 28 DAYS, IT'S AN IMPORTANT TIME TO

  • REFLECT ON AND CELEBRATE BLACK CONTRIBUTIONS TO AMERICAN

  • HISTORY.

  • FOR INSTANCE, DID YOU KNOW THAT BLACK PEOPLE GAVE US BLACK

  • HISTORY MONTH?

  • IT'S TRUE.

  • AND HERE WITH HIS THOUGHTS ON THAT MONTH, PLEASE WELCOME MY

  • FRIEND, MR. TIM MEADOWS.

  • >> GOOD TO SEE YOU, STEPHEN.

  • >> Stephen: IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE YOU, TIM.

  • SO, FEBRUARY IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH AND--

  • >> NOPE, NO.

  • WE'RE NOT DOING THAT ANYMORE.

  • >> Stephen: I'M SORRY.

  • WE'RE NOT DOING WHAT?

  • >> BLACK PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR YEARS: FEBRUARY IS NOT

  • A FULL MONTH.

  • IT'S 28 DAYS.

  • IS 11 INCHES A FOOT?

  • ARE KEVIN AND NICK ALL OF THE JONAS BROTHERS?

  • >> Stephen: NO, THERE'S JOE.

  • >> EXACTLY!

  • AND BLACK HISTORY HAS GOTTEN THE SHORT END OF THE CALENDAR FOR

  • TOO LONG.

  • SO I, TIM MEADOWS, AM CALLING FOR THE EXPANSION OF BLACK

  • HISTORY MONTH TO GIVE IT THE TIME THAT IT DESERVES.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S A GREAT IDEA.

  • HOW WOULD THAT WORK?

  • >> WE STILL GET FEBRUARY, THE "RUNT" MONTH.

  • BUT I AM DECLARING THAT THIS YEAR, BLACK HISTORY MONTH

  • OFFICIALLY BEGAN ON JANUARY 20, WHEN KAMALA HARRIS BECAME THE

  • HISTORIC FIRST-- SECOND BLACK PERSON IN THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • SO BACK-DATING IT TO MAKE IT TO MAKE A FULL MONTH.

  • THAT SOUNDS GREAT.

  • WRONG,■ WRONG.

  • WE'RE ALSO TAKING MARCH AND APRIL.

  • >> Stephen: UMMMM?

  • >> YOU LIKE APRIL FOOL'S DAY, DON'T YOU, STEPHEN?

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: I SEE!

  • IS THIS A JOKE?

  • >> DO I LOOK LIKE I'M JOKING?

  • APRIL FOOLS IS CANCELLED.

  • AMERICAN HISTORY HAS BEEN A SERIES OF PRANKS ON BLACK

  • PEOPLE.

  • SLAVERY?

  • JIM CROW?

  • RED-LINING?

  • HILARIOUS!

  • YOU GOT US!

  • IS ASHTON KUTCHER GOING TO JUMP OUT FROM A BUSH, OR SOMETHING?

  • >> Stephen: I DON'T THINK ASHTON IS INVOLVED IN ANY OF THAT.

  • >> YEAH, YOU BETTER NOT BE, ASHTON!

  • ANYWAY, AFTER APRIL, WE WILL ALSO BE TAKING MAY, AS WELL AS

  • THE WHOLE SUMMER, WHICH WE'RE COMBINING INTO A GIANT 93-DAY

  • MONTH CALLED "WAKANDATOBER.

  • >> Stephen: OH, ALL RIGHT, SURE.

  • >> DON'T, DON'T, STEPHEN.

  • >> Stephen: SO, IS THERE STILL GOING TO BE A FOURTH OF JULY?

  • >> YOU MEAN THE 34th OF WAKANDATOBER?

  • >> Stephen: RIGHT.

  • SO BLACK HISTORY MONTH ENDS ON LABOR DAY?

  • >> NO!

  • AND THIS IS GOING TO BE A TOUGH ONE FOR YOU AND YOUR BUDDIES,

  • BUT WE'RE ALSO TAKING AUTUMN.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, I THOUGHT WE WERE BUDDIES.

  • BUT, OKAY, YOU GET THE FALL.

  • >> THAT'S RIGHT, WE GET ALL YOUR PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES.

  • >> Stephen: I DON'T REALLY THINK PUMPKIN SPICE IS A STRICTLY

  • WHITE THING?

  • >> YEAH, WELL, NOT ANYMORE!

  • AND LET'S TALK THANKSGIVING.

  • YOU KNOW THAT PART WHERE EVERYONE GOES AROUND THE DINNER

  • TABLE AND THEY ALL SAY WHAT THEY'RE THANKFUL FOR?

  • WELL, THIS YEAR, IT BETTER BE A BLACK PERSON.

  • AND NO REPEATS.

  • YOU DON'T GET IT SEE THREE OBAMAS OR FIVE BEYONCES.

  • SOMEBODY BETTER LEARN WHO FREDERICK DOUGLASS WAS, OR

  • NOBODY GETS TURKEY.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, I'M THANKFUL FOR YOU, TIM.

  • >> SAVE IT FOR NOVEMBER, STEPHEN!

  • AND SINCE WE'RE ALMOST THERE, BLACK HISTORY MONTH IS

  • ALSO TAKING DECEMBER.

  • >> Stephen: SO... THE WHOLE HOLIDAY SEASON?

  • >> YES, SIR, YOU BET.

  • AND NO "HAPPY HOLIDAYS."

  • THAT'S A WAR ON BLACK CHRISTMAS!

  • OKAY, WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE TRADITIONAL GREETING: "MERRY

  • BLACK CHRISTMAS, MY BROTHER."

  • >> Stephen: WELL, I LOOK FOWARD TO WISHING YOU A MERRY

  • BLACK CHRISTMAS, MY BROTHER.

  • JIERNGHTS WHOA, WHOA.

  • WE GET TO SAY IT, STEPHEN.

  • NOT YOU.

  • WE, US.

  • YOU CAN SAY, "GOSH, I LOVE YOUR KHAKIS" OR, "HAVE YOU SEEN

  • 'THE CROWN'?" OR WHATEVER YOU GUYS USUALLY

  • SAY.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, I USUALLY SAY, "MERRY CHRISTMAS."

  • >> YOU MEAN BLACK CHRISTMAS?

  • >> Stephen: YES, I DO.

  • >> OKAY.

  • >> Stephen: AND HOW DOES ONE EXACTLY CELEBRATE BLACK

  • CHRISTMAS?

  • >> WELL, IT'S EXACTLY LIKE REGULAR CHRISTMAS, STEPHEN,

  • EXCEPT IT WILL BE LEGAL FOR BLACK PEOPLE TO CLIMB DOWN ANY

  • CHIMNEY THEY WANT TO.

  • AND WHEN WE GET IN YOUR LIVING ROOM, YOU HAVE TO GIVE US

  • COOKIES AND MILK.

  • >> Stephen: SO WHEN ARE YOU PROPOSING BLACK HISTORY MONTH

  • ENDS?

  • >> THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

  • IT ENDS WHENEVER YOU THINK YOU'VE DONE ENOUGH TO HONOR THE

  • CONTRIBUTIONS OF BLACK AMERICANS.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, WHEN YOU PUT IT THAT WAY, TIM, I DON'T THINK

  • WE CAN EVER DO ENOUGH.

  • >> WOW, I WAS GOING TO SAY NEW YEAR'S EVE, BUT IF YOU INSIST,

  • WE'LL JUST TAKE THE WHOLE YEAR.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY.

  • SO IT NEVER ENDS?

  • >> NO, NO, IT JUST SEEMS LIKE IT NEVER ENDS.

  • PROGRESS TAKES TIME, STEPHEN.

  • WHITE PEOPLE JUST NEED TO BE PATIENT.

  • JUST GO SLOW, AND WAIT FOR YOUR PIECE OF THE PIE.

  • BUT IT WON'T BE PUMPKIN!

  • THOSE SPICES ARE OURS!

  • >> Stephen: TIM MEADOWS, EVERYBODY.

  • THANK YOU, TIM HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH-- I MEAN YEAR.

  • YOU KNOW I MEANT YEAR.

  • >> OKAY.

  • >> Stephen: WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH ARCENOHALL.
