Conversation at Noon at Connecticut’s Old State House: Out of the Shadows: Hartford’s First Black Church and School

April 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Out of the Shadows: Hartford’s First Black Church and School

Thursday, April 22 – 12 p.m.

Join Connecticut’s Old State House for a virtual Conversation at Noon.

The National Endowment for the Humanities recently awarded a grant to Hartford’s Capital Community College for a project to raise awareness of the Black community history embodied in the Talcott Street Congregational Church, which stood on a site near the college and today remains unmarked.

Project director Dr. Jeff Partridge will moderate the program, which includes a brief historical context by Dr. Barbara Beeching (author of Hopes and Expectations: The Origins of the Black Middle Class in Hartford) and a panel discussion with museum curator Dr. Frank Mitchell, English professor Antoinette Brim-Bell, and Capital CEO Dr. Duncan Harris about the three components of the project.
