Black history in Connecticut is long and rich with facts and stories we should acknowledge and understand. Connecticut Humanities has compiled more than 40 invaluable articles from its Connecticut History program archives that are well worth exploring and reading, especially as we celebrate Black History Month. The archive is arranged in a fashion making it easy to scroll through and identify stories going back decades.
Here are just two samples:
Dr. King’s Dream Had Roots in Connecticut
Hartford’s Great Migration through Charles S. Johnson’s Eyes
Take a look. Read and learn.
