Johnny O’neal talks about Growing up in Chicago


On the show we receive many letters and testimonies about the struggle that people are going through and rarely get to meet, talk, and actually interview the people who write us. On this rare occasion we ran into this couple from Englewood, Chicago whose story moved us so that Carla felt compelled to get them on air so they can share their story with Steve and the listening audience. I would like to introduce you all to Johnny O’neal and his wife Tiffany Finley. Here is part one of their interview:

In part 2 Steve Harvey talks about sharing a cigar with Johnny and speaks on how far he has been so far removed from the hood that is sounds unbelievable that he is actually from the hood as well. They speak about the lack of resources and opportunities in these communities that keep the hood, well, the hood. Listen to part 2 below.
