City of Shreveport & Mayor Cedric Glover featured in Ebony Magazine

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – Shreveport's film industry success gets the attention of one of the world's iconic publications.

The special 65th anniversary collector's edition of Ebony Magazine features a story on Mayor Cedric Glover.

The focus: how "Shreveport's first black mayor turned a sleepy town into a film-making juggernaut."

It's a move that reportedly brought thousands of dollars in sales tax revenues to the city. The magazine hits newsstands next Tuesday.
