Justice & Faith Hartford Walking Tour

October 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Free
Connecticut’s Old State House, 800 Main Street
Hartford, CT 06106


Join us for a special walking tour around Hartford’s East side exploring the stories of historic activists who once lived and thrived in the neighborhood.

For almost two hundred years, African Americans — both enslaved and free — maintained a vital community on Hartford’s East side. Most of these extraordinary men and women were associated with Talcott Street Congregational, the city’s first Black church. It provided a safe haven and a center of activism for the primary moral and political issues of the day. The “Justice & Faith” walking tour introduces participants to these fascinating figures and uncovers previously unknown stories that are relevant to our times.

Meet at the Main Street side of Connecticut’s Old State House in Hartford.
