Unapologetically Black: Doni Glover Autobiography
Thursdays at Midnight on WEAA 88.9 FM

(BALTIMORE – September 24, 2020) – There are so many challenges here in the City of Baltimore. One has to often take a deep breath just to do basic tasks, like going outside or cutting on the news. However, no matter how ugly things may seem, I have never been fully convinced that God brought us this far to leave us. For me, a quintessential example of hope – even in Baltimore – is the “We Our Us” Movement orchestrated by Dr. Andre Bundley, Brother Andrew Knox Muhammad of Mosque #6, and Pastor Corey Barnes.

On Monday night, this journalist got the sacred opportunity to walk the streets of Park Heights with this army of God-fearing men, Christian and Muslim – affiliated and non-affiliated – mostly Black but some white brothers, too – all trying to make a difference.

According to Pastor Barnes, who is the newly elected President of what is now a 501(c)3 organization, the group also does as many as three food drop-offs each week. They’ve been convening since last year and recently became a formal organization in July. The group started with Dr. Bundley under the Mayor’s Office of African American Male Engagement.

To say the least, I witnessed with my own eyes as these brothers touched the people in the community – young and chronologically-blessed, alike – with love in their hearts. I’m so inspired that I’m going back on next Monday at 6 pm as they will meet at 125 N. Hilton St. – home of Kingdom Life Church.

The group’s website is www.WeOurUsMovement.org.
