ACLU of Maryland Appoints 1st Black Woman as Leader

Posted: May 25, 2018 9:02 AM Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland has appointed its first black woman as executive director.           

Morgan State lecturer and consultant Dana Vickers Shelley will succeed the retiring Susan Goering on June 11. ACLU spokeswoman Meredith Curtis Goode says Shelley will be only the fourth executive director in the Maryland chapter's history.           

Shelley has worked as a consultant with the NAACP and the Democratic National Committee. She also has worked on projects to address racial inequality in Baltimore. At Morgan State University, she's on the faculty of the School of Global Journalism and Communication.           

ACLU of Maryland Board President Coleman Bazelon says Shelley's appointment comes "at a time of both rampant rights violations and great opportunity to create deep and lasting change."

    Locals in Salisbury React To Trump's National Emergency

    President Donald Trump declared a national emergency Friday after congress refused to completely fund his wall at the  U.S.-Mexico border. Congress approved a spending deal to avoid a shutdown, which did not include the $5.7 billion President Trump requested in border wall funding.

    Salisbury University Political Science Chair Adam Hoffman says the move may result in severe push back from democratic congressional leaders, and may even result in legal action.
