Herencias Latinas: Latin Heritage
Begun in 2011 and expanded in 2021 to include The Black Heritage Project, the Hartford Heritage Project has systematically sought to bring the richness of the city’s history and culture into the classroom, and the students and faculty into connections with numerous educational institutions and organizations in the area.
Herencias Latinas / Latino Culture
the newest initiative of its Hartford Heritage Project
The college now prepares for “Herencias Latinas” – the segment focused on Latino culture. Over the next couple of years, students, faculty and staff will explore the many facets of Latino life in the Hartford area, establish new connections with area organizations, develop educational activities and initiatives intended to expand the college’s commitment to understanding and appreciating the diversity and complexity and history of the Latino population of the city of Hartford.
Beginning in Spring 2023 two events launch the project in collaboration with our important partners: Hartford Stage and TheaterWorks of Hartford (TWH).
