About the Chapter
Learn about our Governor, Mangla S. Gulati, MD, FACP by viewing her bio and vision statement.
On June 17, 2021, President Joseph Biden signed legislation making Juneteenth a federal holiday celebrating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States. Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, the day that enslaved persons in Galveston, Texas learned the news of emancipation from Union troops who had just arrived in the area, in accordance with the Emancipation Proclamation which had been issued by President Abraham Lincoln over two years prior. It has historically been celebrated as a second Independence Day in local and regional celebrations across the U.S. since 1866 and is an opportunity to share a long legacy of African American cultural traditions. The Maryland ACP Chapter strongly supports observance of Juneteenth as a day of reflection, to learn from our history and prepare ourselves for the important work ahead of us.
