(BALTIMORE – June 25, 2016) – Dr. Patricia Newton, known in Afrocentric circles as Nana Akousa, has been a stronger supporter of my efforts for a long time. In fact, she is the person who first forecast that I would one day go to Africa. Do understand, she is a world traveler. No, seriously! She has been to most every nation on earth. One of her recent activities over the past couple of years was co-organizing and producing a trafficking summit in Eastern Europe. To say the least, this firebrand is no joke.
Last night, she and some of her friends came out to North Baltimore to give me yet another opportunity to promote my book, “Unapologetically Black: Doni Glover Autobiography.” And for this blessing, I am truly, truly grateful.
When it comes to Afrocentrism, mental health, African-African American cooperation, Dr. Newton was a peer of the late Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. Actually, I have met Dr. Welsing a couple of times, thanks to Dr. Newton.
Most recently, Dr. Newton is one of the featured speakers in “Hidden Colors IV”. To say the least, I am so honored to know this woman as she is a pillar in the community worldwide.
Thanks, Doc! Much love always!
Unapologetically Black is the story of Doni Glover’s trek from the streets of East Baltimore to two decades of journalism that has taken him to Canada, Jamaica, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Jordan. Along the way, he has hosted the longest-running customized news talk show in the nation at Radio One. More importantly, he joined the Fourth Estate twelve years ago when he founded www.bmorenews.com. Since then, his flagship online news service now garners one million hits per month with visitors from 200 nations. Boasting one of the largest African American news video libraries in the nation, Bmorenews.com has become a voice for the voiceless and a vehicle for change – beginning in the DMV (DC/Maryland/Northern Virginia). Additionally, Glover owns DMGlobal Marketing & Public Relations, a firm dedicated to helping clients expand their footprint in the black community. To date, he works with politicians, lawyers, businesses, non-profits, artists, and authors to help them gain much-needed exposure. Finally, Glover started the Original Black Wall Street SERIES *NYC *MD *DC *ATL in Washington, DC in 2011 with Sisters4Sisters Network, Inc. Since then, he and his supporters have recognized tons of black entrepreneurs and professionals along with the people who support them regardless of race. Honorees receive the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Award. Glover has a couple other ventures happening, too. For one, he founded www.blackwallstreetnews.com to compliment the Black Wall Street SERIES and he also hosts “The Glover Report” on www.WPBNetworks.com every Wednesday. Politically speaking, Glover has the pulse of the black vote in Maryland. A critical voice representing the African American community, Glover has been called on time and time again for input on the challenges facing Black America. Not only has he been a fixture on local television in Baltimore, he actually made his national television debut in 2014 on The Roland Martin Show on TV One. His hope is that this book will be a source of empowering inspiration to emerging journalists and entrepreneurs. A highly spiritual man, Glover’s ultimate aim is to improve the image of black folks worldwide via his own independent media outlets.
