International Filmmaker Visits Morgan State

Morgan State University welcomed Cuban movie director Gloria Rolando on campus for two days of film and dialogue last week to educate students on the African Diaspora. Rolando showed her historical fiction film “Roots of My Heart” on Monday, followed by discussion of the movie and a short, personal question-and-answer session. The next day, Rolando led an interactive discussion with students, faculty and visitors centered on using the media to improve the image of black people and to share their largely unknown history. Born and raised in Havana, Cuba, the 61-year-old director never went to film school. She earned her […]

Award-Winning Filmmaker Visits Morgan’s SGJC

Gloria Rolando, a documentary filmmaker of Afro-Cuban heritage, visited Morgan on Monday and Tuesday to screen two of her films and hold a discussion with students. Rolando focused the conversation Tuesday on identity of Africans descendants in the media, particularly in the United States and the Caribbean. Because of the structure of society, she said, those of African decent have difficulty connecting to their African history. There is a common history, and it is essential that students learn history, philosophy, network and learn themselves, said Rolando. “We need to collaborate more; know each other more,” she said. Rolando said that […]

VIEWPOINT: Morgan and “Greatness”

In hopes of boosting Morgan State University’s student enrollment, President David Wilson has opted to act on recommendations from the school’s Return to Greatness Committee to provide better equipment, scholarships and practice space for athletes. With these improvements they hope Morgan’s athletes will have a better success rate and that will, in turn, boost student enrollment. This is perfectly fine, and it can be argued that having a good athletic department would increase overall morale, but what about the rest of the university? Take, for instance, the School of Global Journalism and Communication (SGJC).  What about the labs that journalism […]

Neverdon Concedes in State’s Attorney Race

Russell A. Neverdon conceded defeat early in the evening after Marilyn Mosby’s landslide victory in the battle for State’s Attorney. As a write-in candidate with limited coffers ($5000), he faced serious obstacles. His Democratic opponent, Mosby, won 94 percent of the 104,077 votes cast. Throughout the night he stated repeatedly that whatever the outcome of the race, the fight would not be over. “This is not the end, this is only my beginning,” Neverdon said in his concession speech. “I don’t have to deflate somebody to inflate myself.” The Neverdon camp awaited Tuesday’s election results at Ikaros restaurant in Highlandtown […]

Battle in delegate house, leaves one isolated

Battle in delegate house, leaves one isolated

Shawn Tarrant’s attempt to return to the House of Delegates by means of a write-in campaign failed Tuesday night. Tarrant, who placed fourth in June’s Democratic primary in House District 40, a district that is heavily tilted towards Democrats in terms of registration, finished fourth again Tuesday, but by a wider margin. Tarrant’s write-in candidacy, which drew the support of five former challengers, fell nearly 10,000 votes short of third-place finisher Del. Frank Conaway, Jr., a fellow Democrat. Instead, Conaway will join fellow Del. Barbara Robinson and newcomer Antonio Hayes in Annapolis in January. Conaway Jr., Hayes and Robinson received […]
