BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s been 50 years since Morgan State University moved to its current campus, and now the Lauraville community that once opposed the university is joining it in celebration.
Leaders called Thursday’s event a “peace, unity and reconciliation” ceremony.
Happy Birthday Morgan State University! 💙
