By Ashley ChildsThe Morgan legacy continues to grow by honoring a class of 1961 alumni who is an example of black excellence. Frank M. Conaway, Clerk of the Baltimore City Circuit Court, died at 81 on Sunday, February 15. While speaking at the politician’s funeral, President David Wilson read a presidential proclamation that declared February 23rd as Frank M. Conaway Day. President Wilson said the honor was appropriate due to his remarkable life and his legacy of distinguished public service. Nearly 400 people who attended the four-hour funeral also saw the life and legacy of Mr. Conaway as remarkable. Some […]

The Morgan administration sent out an emergency alert to students at 11:28 a.m. today, announcing that Holmes Hall, Jenkins and the Health Center are closed. Temperatures dipped into the single digits today–and pipes appear to have burst, flooding Holmes Hall. The Spokesman is waiting for a response from the Morgan administration. Check back for updates.
Democratic legislators are uneasy over the prospects of reductions in the state’s education spending. They’re reacting to Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s FY2016 budget proposal. While that indicates a slight spending increase in higher education, experts in historically black colleges and universities say this is expected. “If you are a part of the University of Maryland’s system, you are protected … you’re a larger group,” said Marybeth Gasman, an expert on HBCUs and a professor of higher education in the graduate school of education at the University of Pennsylvania. “If not…you need a plan.” Although Hogan is proposing an increase in […]
All actors have at least one movie that they will have regretted doing. Elizabeth Berkeley had Showgirls. For Sean Connery, it was Zardoz. And Sir Michael Caine famously said this of his role in Jaws: The Revenge: “I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific!” On that note, it is fun to wonder – should their careers endure – what stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan will have to say in the future about Fifty Shades of Grey. The movie, which is based […]
This month, Baltimore theaters are hosting two African-American written plays that differ wildly in subject matter and tone, but benefit greatly from strong and committed casts. Ruined, written by Lynn Nottage, is the story of several women in the Democratic Republic of Congo who must eke out their survival at a Casablanca-esque brothel that serves multiple sides of a brutal civil war – none any better than the other. Life at the brothel is soon upended by the arrival of two new women, Sophie (Zurin Villanueva) and Salima (Monique Ingram), who have been exiled from their village after being the […]
In their first home contest since January 19, the Morgan State Lady Bears struggled to find their rhythm when they needed it most against the visiting Lady Tigers of Savannah State University. The Lady Bears were down by two points at halftime, but the intermission only hurt them as the Lady Tigers took a double digit lead midway through the second half two win 72-58. “If we win this, we’re close to second or third,” said assistant coach Ed Davis, who was filling in for head coach, Donald Beasley, who is recovering from an injury. Instead, the Lady Bears fell […]
