Morgan State president testifies at hearing on violence against minority institutions


Morgan State University President Dr. David Kwabena Wilson testified Thursday before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security about the rise in violence against minority institutions following the recent bomb threats made to Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the nation.

On behalf of HBCUs, Dr. Wilson spoke on historical threats and attacks, safeguarding campuses, the psychological impact of such assaults, and why the institutions came into being.

President Wilson started his testimony by stating,

“The purpose of our gathering today, to address the bomb threats made to Morgan and more than 20 other historically Black college or university campuses this year alone— in addition to other such threats in 2021— is a topic that has, in all candor, tested my resolve and tried my composure during the past several weeks. “
