Hartford’s History of Civil Rights on Display at Goodwin College

On February 23, Jeffrey Mainville of the Hartford Public Library opened the Hartford Times – Voices of Change exhibit showcasing Hartford’s history as part of the Civil Rights movement, now on display at Goodwin College. In Hartford, as in many other American cities, citizens black and white protested continuing inequality and government inaction with marches and rallies. The exhibit showcases photographs from the Hartford History Center’s Hartford Times Collection that help recreate and deepen our understanding of a decade of tumultuous change. The collection is currently on display in the second floor of Goodwin College, One Riverside Drive, East Hartford.
