HBCU Advocates Offer Closing Remarks in Federal Lawsuit Against State of Maryland

Lawyers representing students and alumni from Maryland’s four HBCU’s ended last week’s HBCU equity trial with powerful arguments justifying the methods and costs to dismantle Maryland’s discriminatory system of higher education before U.S. District Court Judge Catherine C. Blake.

Attorney Michael D. Jones boldly defended the transfer of several academic programs from Maryland’s traditionally White institutions (TWI’s) to the state’s four HBCU’s (Bowie State University, Coppin State University, Morgan State University and University of Maryland Eastern Shore) as part of the formula needed to place Maryland’s HBCU’s on par with the state’s TWI’s.
