Super Bowl 50 Halftime show Review

It wouldn’t truly be the Super Bowl if it wasn’t filled with some sort of controversy on and off the field, and the 50th Super Bowl surely didn’t disappoint. 83,000 fans filled the seats at Levi’s stadium to watch the defensive battle that was the Carolina Panthers versus the Denver Broncos. The Broncos would come out the victors, sending future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning out in style.

Morgan students are Unhappy with Baltimore Mayor as Convocation Speaker

Morgan State students would rather say “goodbye” than “hello” to the key speaker of the first convocation of the semester and black history month. For reasoning beyond the knowledge of some Morgan students, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was selected to speak at the Parren J. Mitchell-Benjamin A. Quarles African-American History Month convocation.

In the, past four years she has done barely the minimum to improve the quality of life for the people of this city,” said Barnes. The […]
