(June 2021) President Joseph Biden signed legislation on June 17, 2021 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.
(Spring 2021) Right before everyone's life changed forever, our Diversity Committee met on a very cold February evening to discuss activities for the upcoming year and beyond. The group, led by Drs. Erica Johson and Kim Adkins were able to develop a list of activities and projects which we hope to be able to implement once we are all back in action as a group. One of our main activities will be to advise our Chapter on best practices related to diversity and inclusion as well as establishing mentoring programs for our residents and students. If you are interested in becoming a member of our group (we want to include as many diverse groups as possible), just contact the chapter staff, Maryellen Woodward.
