Desegregating Maryland’s HBCUs: An Update and Critique

Posted: 6/22/2015 11:54 AM

On October 7, 2013 a U.S. District Court judge, Catherine C. Blake, ruled that the State of Maryland and the Maryland Higher Education Commission failed to desegregate the State’s system of higher education as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. As we watch this case unfold, and await the results of mediation that were due on May 30th, we are reminded of the critical nature of this case for the survival of not only Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Maryland, but throughout the country.
