Kam Williams, Entertainment Journalist Extraordinaire
(PRINCETON - BMORENEWS - May 14, 2012) - The BMORENEWS Family is pleased to announce that nationally-recognized movie and book critic Lloyd “Kam” Williams will be honored at our “Global Forum on Women’s Empowerment”. The Forum will take place at the United Nations in New York City on Friday, June 15, 2012 from 11 am to 3 pm. As one our distinguished attendees, you will have the opportunity to: (1) meet representatives at Missions from around the world; (2) discuss ever-evolving challenges in the global business arena; (3) identify empowerment opportunities for women; and (4) develop action plans/items and execute effective follow-up strategies.
Voted Most Outstanding Journalist of the Decade by the Disilgold Soul Literary Review in 2008, Kam Williams is a syndicated film and book critic who writes for 100+ publications around the U.S., Europe, Asia, Africa, Canada and the Caribbean. He is a member of the New York Film Critics Online, the Black Film Critics Circle, the NAACP Image Awards Nominating Committee and Rotten Tomatoes. In addition to a BA in Black Studies from Cornell, he has an MA in English from Brown, an MBA from The Wharton School, and a JD from Boston University. Kam lives in Princeton, NJ with his wife and son.
According to BMORENEWS publisher Doni Glover, "For the uninitiated, Kam Williams is - by far - the finest in the country at what he does." He added, "Nobody writes more consistently and with more preparation than does he. He happens to be African American, but as for entertainment journalism, Kam is world-class. His contribution to the world of media in America and beyond is absolutely priceless. The way he brings the story out is like no other. And even more, Kam's interviewed every black star in the industry - just about!"
For the past decade, BMORENEWS has been organizing and presenting a plethora of business networking events to help empower entrepreneurs. Given the upcoming 10th anniversary for BMORENEWS.com, this marquee event is meant to represent our best. And that should include you! This UN forum is but another example of our dedication to business networking. It is part of our continuum of work that has brought together business deals for the past ten years.
Having been a part of business networking events around the country, this time we’re talking globally: How to sell books in Europe or get it published in Chinese or how to import leather from Ethiopia to make coats or shoes.

The Glover Report: Sharon Baptist Church Celebrates 130th Anniversary: Lt. Gov. Rutherford and Congressman Cummings, former Chief Judge Robert Bell on the Scene as Baltimore City Heads for April 2016 Primary Election
I, for one, cannot stomach that. I insist on seeing black people get educated and employed and open increasingly more businesses and I don’t care if the politician is Democrat or Republican, I just want to know that they are doing their best to represent the needs of the community moreso than their own political career. Actually, the more you serve the people, the more people want to push you higher. So, push your career by pushing black progress. When black politicians fail the people, a Freddie Gray Uprising occurs.

The Glover Report: HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW: Vestiges of Slavery Evoke Disdain of Cheatham, Amin: Wyman Park Statue of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson
Cheatham said that since Baltimore City and Baltimore County are discussing the topic of remaining vestiges of slavery, let’s put this one on the table as well.
Cheatham and Amin wonder the message this sends to a majority black city – right in plain sight of thousands of passersby daily, including Johns Hopkins University students.

Op/Ed: Vanguard Justice Society Welcomes Commissioner’s Challenge to Stand Up for Reforms & Stand Against Police Misconduct to Rebuild Community Trust
Although Commissioner Batts claims credit for reforms in “ethics, training, discipline, equipment, efficiencies, and policies,” we anticipate that the U.S. Department of Justice investigation into the force’s practices and procedures—which Vanguard has repeatedly welcomed--will show that the department still has a very long way to go. In addition, we anxiously await the results of the pending Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) that may reveal a clearer picture of the deployment of public safety resources prior to, during, and immediately after the civil disturbance on April 27—actions that we fear may have, and continue to put both police officers and the public at risk.
