    2019 marks the 200th anniversary of Faith Congregational Church, formerly Talcott Street Congregational Church. The church has made an enormous impact in the City of Hartford in terms of African American-led social, economic, and racial justice, yet it remains a hidden story. Faith will partner with Hartford heritage organizations to tell the story. Through an outdoor program on the original site, we will publicly acknowledge this history followed by a reception at Connecticut’s Old State House. The program will take place on September 29, 2019.
