TGR: Make Teaching Black History a Priority in Your Household: Keep Hope Alive!
Here’s a special “Thank you” to Jelani Favors, Ph.D., at Morgan State University (MSU). The MSU history professor had invited me to join Natanya Duncan, Ph.D., who is also MSU’s History Department, and the Honorary Dr. Marvin “Doc” Cheatham. Cheatham currently runs the Baltimore Branch of the National Action Network, is the former President of the historic Baltimore City Branch of the NAACP, and has registered more people to vote than any other Marylander. Even more, he – along with John Milton Wesley – taught me about Fannie Lou Hamer.
The purpose of the invite was to discuss the John Singleton film, Rosewood, which related the events of the Rosewood Massacre in Rosewood, Florida where a handful of whites – and 40 to 150 blacks were killed. Read in Full >>

The Glover Report: American Denial: Insidious Disease of Racism Exposed on World Stage
I thank God that the murder of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year old black Floridian, has gained worldwide attention. Despite the horrific tragedy of this young man’s life being snuffed out prematurely, it has not been in vain. It has shined a refreshing “social media”-age neon spotlight on America’s most lethal disease: Racism. This racial profiling incident, which has yet to lead to an arrest, has put America ‘out there on Front Street’ for the hypocrite it is. How dare we preach to other nations about freedom and democracy when we clearly have dirt around our own door? How can actually call China out on the carpet, when we have never dealt with our most insidious disease of all: racism? Read in Full >>
The Glover Report: Day 41: Wake Up, America, Before It's Too Late!
Yet, he added, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and countless others did not bleed, sweat, cry, and die just for America to have a black president. Nope! They sacrificed themselves so that justice would reign, so that all men – and women – would be treated fairly such that the blessings of liberty would fall upon all Americans.
After 41 days, George Zimmerman has yet to be arrested. And while black America isn’t at all backing down from this drama, Dyson suggests that a lot of white folks are getting media-weary and wish black folks, pretty much, would just shut up and let this thing go away. Read in Full >>

The Glover Report: George Zimmerman’s Reasonable Doubt :: Trayvon Martin :: Day 39
I can’t speak for you, but I still feel the pain of racism today: It’s 2012. And I still sense the associated violence. Its sound is sometimes faint, but with each passing day – it gets louder, and louder. The drum of revolution, revolt, uprising, and rebellion against a sinister system that would allow the world to see for itself as the cunning demon called racism boldly raises its ugly head from the ashes of American slavery: Butt-naked for the world to see, it is relentless. And there is no fear of cell phone cameras or the like – because America’s dirty little secret is not the least bit ashamed.
