Maryland Emancipation Day: A Vote of the People

This marks the date when a new state constitution ended the institution of slavery in 1864. Join David Armenti, MCHC Vice President of Education & Engagement, in conversation with Marcus “Sankofa” Nicks, Founder of History Heals Consulting, and Maya Davis, Director of the Riversdale House Museum.
