Connecticut Humanities has recently brought two of our favorite projects from the past into the digital age! An Orderly and Decent Government, an exhibition on the history of representative government in Connecticut developed by Connecticut Humanities in April 2000, and put on display in the Capitol concourse of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford, is now available for viewing on ConnecticutHistory.org. Image above, from An Orderly & Decent Government: Making Self-Government Work, 1929-1964, features members of the Organization of Women Legislators in 1945.

Additionally, The Connecticut Experience video series, co-produced with CPTV from 1992-2007, is now available to view on our YouTube channel for free! The 16 video series explores a broad range of topics from Connecticut and the Sea, to Puerto Rican migration to Connecticut (Puerto Rican Passages, watch above), to African Americans in Connecticut, and more.
