Coffee Hour With CHS: Black History Beyond the Amistad
For this Coffee Hour, we'll take you on a tour of items from our collection representing a spectrum of the Black experience in CT. You'll learn about a Harlem Renaissance writer, Ann Petry, who carefully preserved artifacts chronicling the black community of Saybrook. Examine daguerreotypes by Augustus Washington, who abandoned a successful Hartford photography business to build a new nation in Africa. Browse through the photo album of a Hollywood actress who became a champion of labor rights for black entertainers. Marvel at the gorgeous costumes created by CT's West Indian community for their annual MAS celebration. And see artifacts documenting the Civil Rights movement in CT.
