Recognizing African Americans on public buildings

May 5, 2021

I never got to watch an actual game at Cole Field House, the iconic arena once home to University of Maryland basketball. Tickets were in high demand, and limited, and I could never secure one when I was a student there. But the building, on the main drag through campus, is still etched prominently in my college memories. That’s why I was excited when new University President Darryll Pines announced during his inauguration ceremony last month that the facility would be named after the first Black men to integrate basketball and football both at the university and in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
