Colleague Circles—Conversations with CLHO

Smithsonian Institution Secretary Lonnie Bunch III has said: "If you're a historian, your job is to help people understand not just what they want to remember, but what they need to remember." As movements for racial justice highlight the need to reckon with our past, join us to hear some examples of Connecticut organizations that have worked to share African-American histories in their communities. Learn about the Westport Museum's exhibit, "Remembered: The History of African-Americans in Westport," the "Stories of Resilience: Encountering Racism" exhibit at Lyman Allyn Museum, and the
Colchester Historical Society's project, "Emerging from the Shadows: Colchester’s School for Colored Children, 1804-1840."
