Coppin State, Urban League Partner to Publish
Research on Baltimore’s Black Community

BALTIMORE
Coppin State University and the Greater Baltimore Urban League have collaborated to publish The State of Black Baltimore, a collection of scholarly research and observations from some of the region’s top scholars and leaders addressing the state of affairs for Baltimore City’s African American community. 

Education, youth economic empowerment, health, history and the quality of life for Blacks residing in Baltimore City are among the issues addressed in the book. The State of Black Baltimore coincided with the unveiling of Coppin State University’s Raymond V. Haysbert Research Center, a hub for applied research for the community, scholars, businesses and government leaders throughout the region.

Coppin State University is reportedly the first and only historically Black institution to fully fund or take part in a State of Black initiative, a compilation of essays and papers regarding the progress and plight of African Americans in a society of urban settings across the country. All proceeds from The State of Black Baltimore will benefit the Greater Baltimore Urban League.

“This collaboration is a step in the right direction in helping people understand the conditions within the city of Baltimore. Once that step is taken we can start a dialogue that embraces positive change and ultimately put these words into action,” said Dr. Stanley F. Battle, president of Coppin State and editor of the book.

“Coppin State and the Urban League are both committed to the goals of civic duty and human rights,” said J. Howard Henderson, president and CEO of the Greater Baltimore Urban League. Henderson, who also authored a piece in the book added, “It is our mission to play an integral role to improve both the social and economic conditions of Baltimore City and the communities surrounding it.”

The Raymond V. Haysbert Research Center will open doors for applied and qualitative research to scholars, business and political leaders in the Baltimore area. The Research Center, which will be located on the Coppin campus, will explore applied research in the areas of health care, technology, intervention methods for youth and criminal justice with the intent of modeling actionable best practices for cities throughout the nation.
