Hartford Black History Project

The Hartford Black History Project originated as a single exhibit that was distributed between two host institutions: the Charter Oak Cultural Center and the Connecticut Historical Society. The project is the first comprehensive research on the history of Hartford's Black community between the 17th and 20th centuries and is currently composed of two exhibits -- A Struggle from the Start and the Hartford Studies Project. A Struggle from the Start is a virtual exhibit of the history of Hartford's African-American community from 1638 to the present. The Hartford Studies Project is a digitalized collection of gathered images of the Black experience in Hartford, taken from photographs of the Connecticut State Library (CSL), Connecticut Historical Society (CHS), the Hartford Collection at Hartford Public Library (HPL), and other private collections.
