Maryland HBCUs seek 'fair funding' from state

While three of Maryland's Historically Black Colleges and Universities received record-breaking donations from McKenzie Scott, the institutions are also counting on the state to make good on its promise to support them. Morgan State University was among three Maryland HBCUs to receive millions of dollars this week from Scott, the billionaire ex-wife of Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon. She has supported a number of schools across the country.
