The first Black church in Hartford and the first school for Black children once stood next door to our college.

On the corner of Talcott and Market Streets stood what is perhaps the most important site for Black community history in Hartford.

Through the HHP and with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, CCC is creating a permanent exhibition and course curriculum to bring this remarkable history into our lived experience.

Much of the text, links, and resources on this page have been sourced from the original web project of the Liberal Arts Action Lab (comprised of CCC and Trinity College students) which can be found here.
