Promote Maryland as a place of equality | READER COMMENTARY

Statues of Frederick Douglass, pictured, and Harriet Tubman, created by StudioEIS, were installed earlier this year in the Old House of Delegates Chamber at the Maryland State House. The statues, which commemorate the abolition of slavery in Maryland on November 1, 1864, were created as a joint project of the Department of General Services and the Maryland State Archives, under the auspices of the State House Trust.

Maryland, My Maryland

A land of beauty by the sea,

Maryland, My Maryland.

From slavery torn, a better place

Equality we all embrace

Dispel mistrust, God give us Grace

Maryland, My Maryland
