Morgan State is Black history!

For more than 156 years, Morgan State University has been anchored in its mission, ensuring the doors of higher education are open as wide as possible — particularly to those who were historically shut out of pursuing a college education. As a Historically Black University, providing a quality education and producing excellence en masse, Morgan State is Black History and Black History is American History!

Explore Morgan’s rich history of progress, achievements, #MorganMade alumni, and events during #BlackHistoryMonth.
