Trinity College, Hartford CT
The Hartford Studies Project gathered images of the Black experience in Hartford from photographs in collections at the Connecticut State Library (CSL), Connecticut Historical Society (CHS), the Hartford Collection at Hartford Public Library (HPL), and private collections.
The Hartford Black History Project digitalized this collection of images and placed them on line so that it might become more readily accessible to Hartford public school students.
