Thanks to Morgan Students

Posted by Unknown Monday, November 14, 2011

(Daniel de Vise/WASHINGTON POST) - An exhibit unveiled this week at Morgan State University recreates the lunch counter at Read's Drug Store in Baltimore where black students held a series of sit-ins to demand desegregation.

Last Wednesday and Thursday people gathered on Founder's Day of Morgan State University to honor the 400+ students who staged sit-ins at lunch counters in Baltimore I offer sincere congratulations to Professor Larry Gibson and Dr. Wilson, President of MSU, for given long over-due recognition to these pioneers in Civil Rights.

We have to work diligently to ensure that development projects within Baltimore City incorporate the living history of its residents of all races.
