A Juneteenth proclamation from Governor Governor Larry Hogan.

Read more below.

This #Juneteenth, we commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and celebrate the triumph of the human spirit over the cruelty of slavery.

We are reminded of heroes like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, whose legacies are permanently enshrined in the history of our state. May we continue working to realize the vision that they and so many other freedom fighters had for Maryland and for our nation.

Pauli Murray (1910-1985), an LGBTQ icon, a Civil Rights and Women’s Rights activist, was born in Baltimore, MD.

Pauli Murray’s involvement and leadership with organizations working for social justice brought Murray into contact with such influential individuals as President Franklin Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt (a long-time friend), Betty Freidan, and President John F. Kennedy. They appointed Murray to his President’s Commission on the Status of Women. Murray was a co-founder of the National Organization for Women (NOW), worked for the Fellowship of Reconciliation, the NAACP, and many other civil rights groups. Murray’s most important contribution to the law was the book, States’ Laws on Race and Color (1951), which Thurgood Marshall called the Bible of Civil Rights law.
