Professor John Brittain, co-counsel for The Coalition for Equity and Excellence in Higher Education, was quoted in Southern Maryland Online and Delmarva Now on a case he is involved in arguing that historically black colleges in Maryland are treated as inferior to their traditionally white counterparts, and that policies currently in effect have caused colleges to remain segregated.

Professor John Brittain says that Maryland's black schools have been limited by duplication of their academic programs at white institutions, because it gives non-black students less incentive to choose a historically black college. "If you duplicate a program in a white school ... then you are perpetuating that old dual system" of segregation, said Brittain. "Black schools remain nearly all black."
