Midday with The Afro: 11.20.17

Nov 20, 2017

Campus of Morgan State University.

The manhunt is still underway for an unidentified suspect who fatally shot Baltimore City homicide detective Sean Suiter last week. Police and state officials are now offering a $215,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the assailant. 

Judge Catherine Blake issued a decision in the decade-long lawsuit between Maryland’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and the state. The lawsuit concerns diversity and Judge Blake ruled that neither party’s solutions were adequate to boost diversity within the HBCUs. Without a clear victor, many are wondering if it’s back to the drawing board for the case.

 ​Joining Tom to discuss these developments is Kamau High, the Managing Editor of The Afro American Newspapers. He stops by Studio A every couple of weeks to spotlight some of the top local and national stories that The Afro newsroom is covering.
