Court ruling says Maryland hasn't done enough to boost historically black universities


A federal judge has ruled that Maryland hasn't done enough to help the state's four historically black colleges and universities overcome segregation-era policies. The Baltimore Sun reports that U.S. District Judge Catherine Blake found that state universities have continued to unnecessarily duplicate the programs of the four historically black institutions. Plaintiffs had argued that the black colleges were hurt because neighboring institutions offered similar programs. The suit was brought by students and alumni from Bowie State University in Bowie, Coppin State University and Morgan State University in Baltimore, and University of Maryland Eastern Shore in Princess Anne.
