BALTIMORE (AP) — Universities in Maryland are now grappling with racist images in yearbooks from the 1960s and 1970s.

A fraternity page from a 1970 University of Maryland yearbook shows members imitating a lynching.

Yearbook pages from another fraternity in the 1960s include references to minstrel shows as well as photos of men in blackface.

A 1965 yearbook photo shows a man in black paint at a football celebration.

Johns Hopkins University also unearthed racist photos. They include a student in blackface in 1981 and people in robes and hoods in 1961.

The images are re-emerging in the wake of the scandal plaguing Virginia.

A racist photo surfaced last week from Gov. Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook page.

He has denied being in the photo.
