Kane left the Sun in 2008, but at the end of this life, he was still writing for both the Baltimore Times and the Washington Examiner. He also wrote popular columns for Blackamericaweb.com, which can be read here. He was also a visiting professor at Johns Hopkins University’s writing seminars.
“Gregory consistently moved people with his commentaries on BlackAmericaWeb.com, always registering high readership for his articles that were also followed with passionate reader comments – both in agreement and disagreement – as he challenged the thoughts and approach of conventional thinking,” says Marty Raab, Sr. Vice President Marketing, Digital, Communications & Events at Reach Media, Inc.
“The Baltimore Sun, in a memorial, included a comment by an editorial assistant at The Baltimore Times that very well represented the thoughts of our readers – “I loved his mind, even when I didn’t agree with him, he was fun to read.”
Kane is survived by his wife, Veronica White Kane, his daughter, Jennifer White Cherry, his son, Ray Chapman, Sr.a brother, Michael A. Kane, and a sister, Margaret Torrence.
