The Glover Report: BLACK BOX THEATRE: The Big Girls Chronicles: Nikki Scroggiins & Company Produce Powerful Theatrical Production on Women with "More to Love"
Sometimes, we forget how blessed we are. Roughly 5’9” or so and 172 lbs., I was once up to about 190 a couple of years ago. For the most part tho, my waste hasn't changed much from high school. In any event, the 190 lbs. was the heaviest I have ever been. Hence, last night’s play, no matter how one views the title of the play (“The Big Girls Chronicles”), was deep, inspiring and enlightening. A powerful reverberation of what a lot of people go through, regardless of sex, age, religion, etc. – Nikki Scroggins is on to something with "The Big Girls Chronicles."

Republicans, Democrats and Independents - what an American mix! Read in Full >>
The Glover Report: MD14: VOTE for Change: Neverdon, Hogan, Rutherford
At least I can live honest and know that I did all that is within my power to effectuate real change in Baltimore and in Maryland. At least I tried to make black folks’ priorities resonate in the minds of elected officials as well as the broader public. Be wise and be sure to make your vote count.
ENDORSEMENT: And so I ask that you, the voter, cast your vote for much-needed change in Baltimore and in Maryland. Write-in Neverdon for Baltimore State’s Attorney; he is more than capable. And do vote for my friend, Boyd Rutherford, and his running mate, Larry Hogan, for governor. Read in Full >>
