Incarceration rates in the U.S. disproportionately impact African American men. Minorities as a whole are more likely to be swept up in the criminal justice system than their white counterparts. But it is black males in particular that are most dramatically impacted by the U.S. criminal justice system. In 2015, one in every 15 black men is incarcerated compared to one in every 36 Hispanic men and one in every 106 white men, according to the NAACP. At an HBCU like Morgan State, that means many students have friends or family members who have been affected by the high incarceration […]

It’s a challenging combination of schizophrenia and manic, depressive symptoms of bipolar disorder. For a long time, I never told anyone about my illness because I was ashamed. I was afraid of the usual, like “She’s crazy. What’s wrong with […]
Speakers at a City Hall rally Monday urged students from three historically black colleges and universities to become leaders in the protest movement emerging from recent unrest in Baltimore.

Several student government representatives from the three schools talked about the importance of HBCU students stepping up and becoming leaders. Pugh proposed an idea to keep college graduates of Baltimore colleges in Baltimore. She suggested that abandoned houses in Baltimore be sold to college graduates for a dollar and that they be […]
BALTIMORE— Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced the end of a curfew Sunday, six days after unrest and looting had forced her to implement it and brought a heavily armed police and National Guard presence to the city. At a morning press conference, Rawlings-Blake said the curfew, which was in place from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily and initially had been scheduled for one week, was ending, “effective immediately.” In doing so, she expressed hope that peace would hold in the city and gratitude to residents for their actions following Monday’s destructive riots in West Baltimore. “Right now, I’m very […]
