Morgan State University (MSU) and AFRO-American Newspaper are partnering to launch a statewide polling and research initiative to understand African-American’s opinions on a variety of issues.
MSU’s Institute for Urban Research Center
The institution and publication’s research collaboration will start with a poll on Maryland’s gubernatorial race and continue surveying and analyzing African-American attitudes on relevant community issues such as economics and buying power, quality of life, mortality and law enforcement and more, according to MSU.
Braun Research, Inc. in New Jersey will conduct polling and data collection. Polling and research analysis will take place in MSU’s Institute for Urban Research and be led by Dr. Raymond Winbush, the institute’s director.
“This is a unique time in our country’s history, and to make sense of some of the things that are transpiring requires a unique understanding, as we strive to give a voice to those who may not feel their issues are adequately being addressed or highlighted,” said MSU president Dr. David Wilson. “With this partnership, we believe that we can assist in bridging some of the gaps.”
