Join us for a special walking tour around Hartford’s East side exploring the stories of historic activists who once lived and thrived in the neighborhood.
For almost two hundred years, African Americans — both enslaved and free — maintained a vital community on Hartford’s East side. Most of these extraordinary men and women were associated with Talcott Street Congregational, the city’s first Black church. It provided a safe haven and a center of activism for the primary moral and political issues of the day. The “Justice & Faith” walking tour introduces participants to these fascinating figures and uncovers previously unknown stories that are relevant to our times.
Meet at the Main Street side of Connecticut’s Old State House.
