On Wednesday, January 26, student journalists from several Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) attended a virtual White House briefing with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia L. Fudge.

During the news briefing, Fudge answered as many questions as she could during the 30 minute timeframe.

Gabriel Ortis, a Morgan State student and reporter for WEAA’s Morgan News Hour was in attendance and asked the HUD secretary about the high number of vacant and abandoned properties in cites across the country and what her department is doing to fight blight.
