Terry Glover, Managing Editor of “Ebony,” Has Died

December 28, 2012  |  

Terry Glover, who joined Ebony in 2006 as the website’s editor and became managing editor in 2009, died on Christmas Eve at the age of 57. According to The Chicago Tribune, the cause of death was colon cancer. She had been battling the disease for two years.

“Terry was the heart and soul of the Ebony team,” Fishbowl NY quotes a statement from the magazine’s editor-in-chief Amy DuBois Barnett.

Glover had previously worked for a number of magazines including Savoy, Uptown, and Playboy.com. As a young woman, after getting a Master’s degree from Roosevelt University, she traveled across Europe as a filmmaker making a movie about black culture in Europe. She’s remembered by friends as an advocate for the arts.

Barnett says there will be a memorial for Glover in the next issue. Her family says there will be a memorial service next month. Terry Glover is survived by a husband and two daughters.

    So sad. I knew her in the mid 80’s and she was a unique sweet woman.
    Very much an advocate of the arts. She had a lot to offer people.

  • Just saying!!

    This is so sad! May she rest in peace and I hope her family stays strong and keeps her memory alive. I swear the people that run this country are trying to kill us. It seems like everyone era cancer and I hate it. They don’t care about us. They’re making money off of our sickness. I’m goin to shut up because I can feel mysel getting angry and I don’t want to start off the day that way. Anyway, may her memory stay alive!
