Most people in the DC area know Anwan Glover as one of the founding members of  The Backyard Band, one of the most popular Go-Go bands out there, but others immediately recognize him from his character Slim Charles on The Wire.

Early Sunday morning, just after performing at the Summer Spirit Festival with Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae, Talib Kweli and Meshell Ndegeochello, Glover was stabbed inside D.C.’s popular Cafe Asia night club.

According to the Washington Post, Glover was jumped outside of the club by two people, and then stabbed.  Glover was treated at a local hospital for the stabbing later released.

Glover posted  on Instagram after being released:

“I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I’m going to spread love,” Glover wrote. “I am recovering and will be back soon. My flesh may be stabbed but my spirit is unbreakable.”

    Of course, the comments on other sites are blaming him for this.

    I guess he was shot in the past, and people are using that to somehow make this his fault. SMH

    I wish him a speedy recovery. Whenever a black person is a victim there are always several people ready and waiting to blame them for what happened to them, instead of blaming whoever attacked them.
